Visual Art Eden’s On Fire
posted by June 13 at 14:17 PMon
Last week, I walked into Platform Gallery in Pioneer Square and apologized. As soon as I saw the current show (which closes after tomorrow), I knew it was one that I should write about—and one I wouldn’t have time to write about in-depth.
But I do want to recommend it here in short. Please take these three images as testimony to the power and strangeness of the 13 included works by these three artists, all of which depict a beautiful world infected with panic.
Joy Garnett’s Paris Riots (#3) (2005-2006), oil on board, 11 by 14 inches
Michael Schall’s Volcano Fabrication Project (2007), graphite on paper, 40 1/2 by 62 inches
Saul Becker’s Weed Explosion (2008), ink and gouache on paper, 41 by 59 1/2 inches
