“What’s the Story” Exhibition
"What's the Story" contains narrative painting by seven artists. The Seattle Art Fair exhibition represents a continuation of a group exhibition held at Linda Hodges Gallery in 2016. Storytelling is the main theme, although these pieces allude to narrative but do not give too much away. Each viewer is encouraged to piece together his or her own interpretation.
The artists included in this exhibition are:
Gaylen Hansen: From the exploits of his alter ego, "The Kernal," to his depictions of animals and the objects used in the act of painting (paint tubes, brushes, etc.), Hansen has consistently put forth work that has solidified his reputation as one of the nation's premier artists.
Justin Duffus’s narrative paintings delve into the mysterious underpinnings of human behavior. The paintings are both intimate and distant, personal and objective.
Jed Dunkerley paints humorous but tragic scenes of human/nature interaction.
Michael T. Hensley interweaves the gritty feel of the street with color overlays, symbols, scratches, and mixed media onto rectangular panels and canvases. If you were to blend Basquiat and Guston and Twombly, you might tune into Hensley’s largely abstract fields dotted with mark making, personal iconography, and at times cartoonish figures.
David Hytone works with geometric forms mixed with a constellation of volumes, flat patterns, and multiple colors combinations. His epic pieces suggest classical scenes from afar, while desolving into abstraction closer in.
Polina Tereshina: A restless master of many mediums, Seattle artist Polina Tereshina is exhibiting provocative gender-bending figures.
Wendelin Wohlgemuth: Since his Seattle debut in 2016 (at Linda Hodges Gallery), Wohlgemuth has shown in New York, Los Angeles, Spain, and Sweden. Psychologically astute, his figurative work captures human emotion in raw form and reflects his concern with identity.
