Bauhaus exhibition space beautifully highlights work

Nov 1, 2013

The work is going up at Columbia Basin College Gallery. This has been 20 months in the making and I'm thrilled to be participating!

ELSVELT GALLERY November 2-December 6 2012

Columbia Basin College. 2600 North 20th Avenue, Pasco, WA 99301


The Accident Paintings have just been hung at the Esvelt Gallery in Eastern Washington. The space at the Esvelt Gallery is stunning. How beautifully it showcases the work! Mary Drybough, the curator, gave an excellent radio interview abou the exhibit. Listen to it here. I love how she lined up the bottoms of the paintings in the exhibit.


For the installation we added "blood" to the wall behind the painting...Looks great Mary!


I understand there are more pictures coming. We're doing an installation with some blood on the walls behind a paintings. Very exciting!


I love the flow of these four together, the way my eye moves across the images, above and below.


I really love how this works! Even from the front entry Crossbow Accident points up the steps to the other art.


Columbia Basin College's November art exhibition features a macabre theme. Deconstruction and Destruction opens in Pasco on Nov. 4 with the grisly paintings of artists Kate Vrijmoet of Seattle and Marcus Durkheim from California. Their work is a mix of the expectations and perceptions of violent acts, such as Vrijmoet's depictions of grotesque, bloody figures mangled in horrific accidents by chainsaws, shotguns and axes. Durkheim describes his work as perceptions that deal with guns, grenades and spy planes, as well as household items such as shoes and food. But even though the images might appear violent or gruesome, not everything is what it first appears to be, the artists say."
