fort branch… coming soon!

05Aug10

The house and studio have been all a-buzz as my husband, Zack, prepares for an upcoming show, Fort Branch, at Vermillion Gallery here in Seattle. If you’re in the area, come visit at the opening next Thursday (part of Capitol Hill’s second Thursday Art Walk). I’m very excited about the work… more sculpture than usual, and an array of photos that volley with it in themes as diverse as campfire dinners and the fear of death. Yes, that’s what I said.

“In this series,” Zack says, “many of the works walk the line between play and catastrophe in the face of an unwieldy natural order. The exhibit is filled with a series of artifacts, including a full-scale dilapidated Lincoln Log cabin, drawing on the nearly 100-year-old toy designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s son John during the Progressive Era. The toy’s early packaging described the contents as ‘interesting playthings typifying the spirit of America’. Also among the works are a mummy bag sarcophagus, a flag-burying kit and a selection of photographic documents and occurrences.”
