Andrew Dadson at Lawrimore Project

When one encounters an abstract painting with goopy paint and an expressionist hand, it is still hard not to be seduced by the sheer beauty of it.

Adam Satushek: Annex

Seattle-based photographer Adam Satushek would like to play tricks on your eyes and your mind. His work, currently on view in the solo exhibition, Annex, at Platform Gallery in Seattle, does just that. Often many layers deep, Satushek’s works read like visual puns.

A Shallow Wade is the title of a new exhibition that shows Americana distilled through an outsider’s perspective, that of Rotterdam artist Ron van der Ende.  Through his process of assembling large wall-hung collages of wood, he has salvaged doors, furniture, and other building fragments and deconstructed them, leaving worn paint in tact on skinned timber.

From Whence the Rainbow Came

Currently on view at Ambach and Rice Gallery in Seattle is the exhibition, From Whence the Rainbow Came. The exhibition features new works by acclaimed Seattle-based artists Jeffry Mitchell, Joe Park, Dan Webb and Claude Zervas. The collection of works defy the standard structure of a curated exhibition or the trend to have several small solo groupings presented under one roof. Instead the artists, who are all friends and colleagues,[…..]
