I have a couple paintings in a group show focusing on contemporary approaches to the still-life at the Seattle Pacific Art Center in Seattle. It opens Friday, October 15th.
Good still life has always been about sensuality. In our world of synthetic materials and virtual realities, still life can remind us of the beauty that's painful and bloody: birth, woundedness, ecstasy, transformation, decay and death. Artists featured include Zack Bent, Eric Elliot, Linda Hutchins, Gregory Jacobsen, Steve Levin, Christian van Minnen and Natalie St. Martin.
It runs through December 3rd. Go here for more info. I won't be there, but I hope you can make it out if you're in the Seattle area.
