 Back  Vignettes | Washington | September – October, 2012

By Allyn Cantor

DANIEL CARRILLO: AMBROTYPES Greg Kucera Gallery, Seattle, Aug 23-Sep 29 Daniel Carrillo creates an old time look with the “wet plate collodion” photographic method from the 1850s. Contemporary subjects look like they were photographed a century ago. Carrillo’s moody black and white portraits of Seattle artists and critics certainly capture distinct individual personalities. The process of slowly exposing a glass plate reveals warm, vintage-looking prints that have the feel of the photographer’s “hand” at work to uniquely create each piece – a skill often overlooked in the age of digital photography.

THE RECORD: CONTEMPORARY ART AND VINYL Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, Jul 14-Oct 7 This exhibit explores the intersection between visual art, music and the culture of vinyl records within the context of contemporary art. The exhibition pieces show how the vinyl medium – valued for its warm, analogue listening quality, as well as the rich history of album cover art – was preserved, transformed or manipulated through art from the 1960s to the present. Contemporary artists use video, performance and sound art, as well as painting, photography and sculpture, with a wide range of approaches from outsider art to fine art to popular culture.

THE MARIONI FAMILY: RADICAL EXPERIMENTATION IN GLASS AND JEWELRY Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, Jun 9-Sep 23 This exhibit celebrates the well-deserved artistic legacy of Paul Marioni and his two children, Dante and Marina Marioni. Paul is well known as an innovator in glass art. His son Dante is recognized for expanding upon methods of the Venetian tradition to create a variety of elegant and vibrant vessels. Marina Marioni’s ingenuity as a self-taught jewelry artist has taken shape through her use of alternative materials and pop culture inspirations, showcasing wit and a sense of humour.

ANN MORRIS: CROSSINGS Lisa Harris Gallery, Seattle, Sep 6-30 Ann Morris’s new series of boat forms are expressive of life’s many journeys. The Lummi Island artist resides on a large art-filled property that influences her creativity. Morris has been collecting beautiful found natural objects for years. Crossings utilizes many of these objects in slender vessels made from combinations of gathered materials like twigs, sea kelp, horsetail and wasp nest paper. Embellishments of sinew, bone and tree roots create intricate detailed artwork to larger pod-like forms, giving each one piece a different emotional personality.

THE SPACE BETWEEN THINGS Prographica, Seattle, Sep 22-Oct 27 There is a formal relationship between a rendered subject and the compositional space that exists around it. The pieces on exhibit deal with the premise that objects describe space, just as pauses or silent inflections would mean nothing without sound. The group show includes seven artists: Marsha Burns, Eric Elliott, Ann Gale, Caroline Kapp, Robert Maki, Jordan Wolfson and Evelyn Woods. Woods’ pieces are a particularly good illustration of the space between things as she works from dark to light, using an eraser and sandpaper to define space.
