I ventured to the Seattle Art Fair this weekend.
After meeting a partner in crime for coffee, we journeyed into the labyrinth of contemporary art. A world of men wearing ascots with shorts, plentiful wine and an electricity of weirdness in the air.
Rows upon rows of international and local galleries. Einar and Jamex de la Torre
glass work was exhibited (I enjoyed their new direction), as well as Joan Miro and Damien Hirst's work. (Seen it, not my gig)
My favorites pieces consisted of repurposed items that the artists so cleverly integrated into their work, some of the 3D sculptural pieces I enjoyed as well.
I'm seeing a trend in stainless steel, for a sculptural medium as well as casting in resin. (Resin casting is something I've wanted to do for a while) A lot of deconstruction in 2D work... Cut up paintings reworked, to make a linear visual image. Also digital images of looped videos.
Pictured is a one of favorite works, I should have got the artists name but was so focused on the work, and not getting in others way, I didn't. My curiosity came more from the materials used, and if I was drawn to it.
A thank you to Aron, for not bringing out the duct tape and allowing me to ramble my endless fractured art thoughts in the excitement of viewing some amazing work!
