Robin Siegl makes oil paintings inspired by the industrial waterfront she sees regularly in frequent rowboat trips. The Duwamish River, Ballard ship canal and parts of Lake Union are her favorite places to investigate the enormous bulk of ships and barges. The wiggly water on which they float reflects marked-up, heavily worn surfaces and massive shapes, providing endless ideas for paintings. Siegl strives to convey the beauty in this subject, one that is not often thought of as beautiful. This exhibit includes five new paintings on heavy square paper, some exploring her new favorite subject; the thin line of light between two adjoining barges.
