I Dream in Color
Artist Kurt Erickson’s dynamic, colorful abstractions explore the bursts of radiance that come from the in-between spaces of our dreams. While awake, colors are used to represent everything from mourning and love to excitement or rage. When noticing a color while dreaming, the interpretation of that dream could be aided by what colors shine through.
While working in his studio, Kurt reverts back to a childlike creative headspace, letting intuition take hold. His subconscious mind moves to the in-between spaces and glimpses light and darkness. This body of work, like most of his work, is accessible to anyone and is aimed at the child inside all of us. Kurt’s paintings encourage minds to wander, referred to as dreams in the sense that they are open to interpretation. He hopes to make connections with each viewer and start a unique conversation between painting and audience.
Notes from my backyard
Sequestered by COVID-19, A-M Petersons found her backyard a refuge for discovery and contemplation – inspiring subtle, beautiful evocations of lichen “ghosts”.
A-M Petersons has a relationship with her garden, with the last two years cementing their bond. When home was a refuge, fortress, and jail, the garden stepped up and led her to a new place – a place that already existed with a view she had previously ignored. For A-M, the beams of the pergola became meditation mantras. She was led to look up, consider the branches of the apple tree, and examine the old retaining wall that holds the roots of a grapevine. Each examined surface offered the usual splotches and shadows of garden “ghosts”. During the days spent isolated in the garden, scanning the beams of the pergola, the walls, the concrete wall, A-M was drawn into the gray. The ghosts she saw breathed life.
The Other Washington State
Spotlighting industrial landscapes of eastern Washington, artist Angshuman Sarkar‘s exhibition The Other Washington State is an exploration and tribute of the American landscape that is often less seen and infrequently talked about.
Washington state is divided by the mountains into two parts, splitting the economy, occupations, and lifestyles with it. In the industrial and agrarian landscapes of eastern Washington, we can see many of the building blocks of the country – the ecosystem of human endeavor, engineering ingenuity, hard work and infrastructure.
