Artist Profile: Jake Millett

A native Seattleite, Jake Millett introduces Light and Line as part of the December 5 South Lake Union Art Walk.

A painter and illustrator, his crisp and linear paintings are given a foray into the 3-dimensional in his South Lake Union installation.  Mirrored plexiglass, ribbon, tape, and window paint are all employed to create a shifting, confounding landscape that both reflects and ensnares the viewer.

Millett says:

“Windows are a passage between two worlds, the inner and the outer. With reflections and layers of lines, Light and Line plays with these notions, placing the viewer within the window amongst the chaos and movement created by the layers of lines. Mirror makes the depth of the piece uncertain, and it alters as the viewer traverses the work, light pulsates and dances between the layers of lines as ones moves. The viewer is allowed to immerse themselves in the work, a playful and dynamic piece that should be viewed from every angle and in motion. My traditional two-dimensional graphic work moves into the third dimension in this site specific installation, exploring a new world of possibilities.”
