Seattle artist Philip LaDeau examines the latent memories of existing architectural spaces primarily through drawing and sculpture. Observing and recording how light inhabits a space, these works can be considered drawings of the inhabited space, evolving with the lighting conditions throughout the day. The artist highlights various facets of the building’s past and current use, revealing overlaps and contingencies in order to create a new experience of the space.

Seattle artist Serrah Russell uses instant film, found imagery and digital photography to created collage and sculptural installations featuring subtle pairings of subject and material.

ESCAPE are two works of sculptural collage created with photographic materials of the Pacific Northwest landscape and textile materials traditionally used for protection against the elements, including mylar heat blankets and blue plastic tarp. The works offer a source of visual transportation for individuals journeying through their daily routines in the city. The works of tactile materials and fragmented imagery of the natural world draw connections between our experience as humans and our relationship with our surroundings, evoking abstracted and fragmented individual memories. ESCAPE continues an ongoing exploration of the artist in the medium of collage as she expands into larger scale and multiple dimensions.

Sponsored by the City of Bellevue and Meydenbauer Center.
