Eden’s On Fire

posted by on June 13 at 14:17 PM

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

Yeah, Paris Riots is really really amazingly cool.

I agree @1 and 4. Paris Riots is really cool. I think the other two may be better in person, however, as I can't really make out the details.

Saturday is the last day for this show. The gallery will be open from 11am to 5:30pm. Come by and experience this powerful work in person.
