Artists for October ArtWalk

Sev Shoon Arts Center
2862 NW Market Street

Artist Justin Kane Elder simplifies images by deconstructing them into basic geometric shapes. His goal is to construct a complex design out of simple forms. Each piece focuses on individual colors and how those colors relate to the space they inhabit. Colors are piled together to create a network of corresponding objects. These objects are what makes each composition identifiable.

Annie's Art & Frame
2212 NW Market Street

Demian Johnston and Chris Smith from Ballard present: Remains To Be Seen. The show is a multimedia reaction and reflection inspired by the stories and the rediscovery of the remains of the forest fire that Demian's childhood home surrendered itself to. Using the ashes in every piece, they collaborated as a family to recreate new physical memories in art.

Back on the ArtWalk again with I Wonder by tomm’ee. Artist of the Mind, Life, Fine Form and Figure. “Art is everywhere you look and in everything you do.” This show relates to simply the world of wonders the artist sees, feels and captures. His work consists of one to nine photographic images merged into one, which goes through many artistic and technical adjustments and cleanings. A typical image can take up to 10+ hours to refine and produce, creating Thomas G. Whipple Fine Art Photography with a Twist. One that captures details, colors and shades that single images miss. Composition and concept are high priorities in the creation of Whiple's images. Embedded in some of my images are concepts, which can appear in the form of stories and personal philosophies, hidden symbols or figures.

5408 22nd Avenue NW

Ken Judd describes himself as a blue collar artist and craftsman who makes art wherever he goes. He’s always been drawn to using found objects and inexpensive, odd materials. When Judd moved into a rental house in 2009, whose previous owner was a handyman/do-it-yourselfer from the Depression era, he discovered a treasure trove of nuts, bolts, washer, old brake fluid cans and tools - inspiring him to create his current series of Robot Pioneers. They are made of 95% salvaged materials: wood, glass, metal and resin.

Root. Integrative Health
2026 NW Market Street, Suite 201

Influenced by cartoons and Picasso, Jake Galm explores spiritual revelation in a storybook world. He describes his style as "Bubblegum Cubist Surrealism," and allows it to develop through each piece without a preconceived interpretation. "It's like a dream that you have, instead of presenting an idea that you hold." His radiant work will dazzle even your eyelids and his story; further intrigue you into a deeper level of insight beyond the canvas.

Art & Soul

2860 NW Market Street

Presenting New Work, art by Joan Stuart Ross & Kappy

Joan's current series builds up layers of encaustic medium as metaphors for energy, introspection and depth. In a process similar to intaglio, the grids and interstices of color-filled carved lines create an atmosphere underneath and between suspensions of wax, resin and color. Kappy's new works layer surfaces of acrylic paint on panels to create a lacquer-like density, a luminous glow. Interspersed are dabs of color that relate to the idea of foul bite in etching--random marks and glyphs engage to create a mysterious narrative.
