Stephen is on vacation (well deserved) and I’m sitting the gallery for him today. I get to spend time with Adam’s exceptional photos.
From the press release:
Adam Satushek pays close attention to the ways that human beings influence their surroundings through the traces that are left behind and the impact on the landscape from behaviors, movements, and alterations. His work captures the odd and unintended intersections of common, forgotten objects with the natural environment; an environment which then must bear the mark of that uninvited partnership and struggle mightily to maintain its dignity.
They are LARGE and beautifully printed. And odd – in a good way.
In January Rebecca and I got to visit briefly with Marc Dombrosky and Shannon Eakins at Marc’s show at Platform. My post about “Neverland”here. They have relocated to Las Vegas while Shannon pursues her MFA. We miss them.
Marc recently sent me a gift of one of his lovely embroidered pieces. Thanks Marc! I have it in the studio beside a pair of Marc and Shannon’s “Tacoma Drinkers.” These are leather beer holsters that attach to your belt loops for two fisted drinking.
Platform is pleased to announce the publication of a suite of four prints by Scott Fife. Measuring approximately 25″ x 19″ printed from sugar lift, spitbite, and aqua tint plates, they are available in two different paper options:
