August 4 – 26, 2011
Opening: First Thursday, August 4, 6pm – 8pm
In August Gallery4Culture presents Parallels, a solo exhibition of four meticulously crafted portraits by Seattle-based artist Jason Larsen. Working from appropriated vintage photographs of strangers as well as several of his own shots of close friends, Larsen records and interprets the essence of his subjects with remarkable focus and care.
The artist carves on Shina, a subtly grained Japanese plywood that has been inked, presenting the carvings as the finished artwork rather than using them to create an edition of prints, as is traditional. Join us in welcoming Jason Larsen on First Thursday.
