Stash Pot Shop

Gary Morrison, Photographer
Gary Morrison’s subjects have ranged from the brilliant frenzy of professional sports to the graphic quiet of architecture, and just about everything in between. Currently his focus is on cannabis after a simple commission led to another artful study in light, color, and form. His company Green Lens Images is the evolving collection that’s grown from it.
Gary’s work has been included in several gallery shows in his home town of Seattle, as well as one at The Museum of Photography in Tokyo, Japan.  He was team photographer for the Seattle Supersonics in the 1990s and also provided photography for the NBA, Major League Baseball and The Sporting News. He has also been featured in Popular Photography magazine for his artistic interpretation of major league baseball stadiums.
In his shift to cannabis photography, Gary became fascinated with the vast variety of visual properties that shift and change, between strains. As Gary approaches this incredibly diverse plant, he likes to imagine he is exploring the many different forms of joy it represents for so many people. For artists like Gary it has produced a complex subject to explore, while for others it has been the catalyst to their creativity, and for others a method of pain management or emotional healing. Through photographing what Gary has defined as ‘a subject that provides a path to many of life’s best offerings, both social and scientific’ he has been able to explore just how impactful a single plant can be, for the world.
Some of Gary’s images appear in large patterned montages to evoke feeling of the greater picture that cannabis comprises, while others are a series of close ups, revealing the stunning world contained in a single bud. 



For the first two months of 2016 the Push/Pull book club met to discuss the surreal Russian novel, The Master & Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. Part of the assignment was to create art based on the novel. This is a unique show in that the artists have been meeting for months to discuss the subject and what they are working on. 

Artists will be on hand to talk about their pieces and their impressions of the story. (Art on display through May 12th)

Featuring work by
Corianna Garrels
Melissa McClintock
Aaron Morgan
& Mark Campos

For those not familiar with The Master & Margarita here is a bit to get you interested, from the chapter Satan's Grand Ball:

"Those ten seconds seemed extremely long to Margarita. Obviously they had already passed and precisely nothing had happened. But here something suddenly crashed downstairs in the huge fireplace, and from it leaped a gallows with some half-decayed remains dangling from it. The remains fell from the rope, struck the floor, and from it leaped a handsome dark-haired man in a tailcoat and patent leather shoes. A half-rotten little coffin ran out of the fireplace, its lid fell off, and another remains tumbled out of it. The handsome man gallantly leaped over to it and offered it his bent arm. The second remains put itself together into a fidgety woman in black shoes, with
black feathers on her head, and then the man and the woman both hastened up the stairs.
'The first!' exclaimed Koroviev. 'Monsieur Jacques and his spouse. I commend to you, Queen, one of the most interesting of men. A confirmed counterfeiter, a traitor to his government,
but a rather good alchemist. Famous,' Koroviev whispered in Margarita's ear, 'for having poisoned a king's mistress. That doesn't happen to everyone! Look how handsome he is!'
The pale Margarita, her mouth open, watched as both gallows and coffin disappeared into some side passage in the front hall.
'Delighted!' the cat yelled right into the face of Monsieur Jacques as he came up the stairs."

Ladies and Gentlemen, and Tiny Flying Elephants

"Ladies and Gentlemen ...and Tiny Flying Elephants" is Krissy Downing's first international art exhibit featuring twelve giant paintings that will grace the 26th floor of QRE Plaza in Hong Kong! To celebrate the release of this new work, Krissy will produce a limited number of prints to be concurrently displayed at Push/Pull Gallery in Seattle. Krissy's vivid portraits of mutated puppy-bees, a giant rainbow seahorse, miniature giraffes, teacup bunnies (and more!) will sprawl our walls April 9th through May 12th, 2016. Can't make it to Hong Kong? Stop by Push/Pull and grab a few of these gorgeous prints before they disappear!

Krissy is a Seattle based surrealist painter who creates large, colorful works in oil  and acrylic. An enthusiast of the beauty in merged contrast (the stark harmonies of light against dark, the delicate "in between" of serenity and chaos, the absurdity of lighthearted lyrics sung in a minor key...), her figurative pieces celebrate human complexities while exploring a playful world of imaginary creatures poised in commonplace scenes with grand gestures of whimsy against the slightest hint of profound emotion.
