For her new exhibition, Seattle artist Daphne Minkoff is re-exploring imagery that she photographed many years ago. This artist typically combines painting with photographs, taken during her travels, to reflect upon the fleeting moments and recollections of places that occur throughout life. A Reconsideration focuses on visual excerpts of abandoned buildings that interested the artist in her past. By revisiting images through the lens of prior understanding, Minkoff poses formal questions that are answered through the unfolding process of intuitively creating a painting.

Using many materials and techniques, Minkoff builds her textural pieces with painting, collage, printmaking, encaustic and drawing. The collision between geometry of the man-made structural world and the chaos of nature is of special interest to Minkoff, who filters this visual concept into her pieces. Layers of media are built up and torn away, reflecting the ongoing cycle of progress and decay that can be seen with the weathering passage of time. Bringing a personal archaeology to each new piece, Minkoff considers, with a new perspective, the memory and experience of the place where her original photo was taken, responding through the explorations and poetic notions that accumulate during the painting process.
