Currently I have miniature collage works such as the piece Gasworks, as seen above, displayed at Ghost Gallery for their 9th Annual Miniature Art Extravaganza. Opening is December 11th from 5-9 pm during Capitol Hill's Art Walk. Work will be on display through February 9th. For more information check out Ghost Gallery or their event page.
Also on exhibit during Capitol Hill's Art Walk are some of my newest pieces including the piece Tin Dwellings, made with tin supplied by local Seattle artist, William Herberholz's donated collection of vintage and salvaged tin. These pieces can be found at Saint John's Bar & Eatery on Pike St in the heart of Capitol Hill.
Inspired by tarnished and colorful metal surfaces I have been assembling compositions focused on the formal interactions of color, shape and texture. In exploring tin as a new medium, I have been experimenting with different combinations of materials such as using tin on paper with pen and ink drawings or using tin on paper with serigraphy prints of patterns. I like the precarious juxtaposition of tin and paper, however I also enjoy affixing tin to panels. Some of my most recent work combines tin with other found object materials such as piano keys, miniature toy pieces, clock parts and more.
Special thanks to Laurie Kearney, curator and owner of Ghost Gallery for these exhibition opportunities.
