David Selleck: Catch You On The Flip Side
Blackfish Gallery, Portland, OR - Feb 5 – Mar 2
David Selleck’s posthumous retrospective sums him up as a true Oregon transplant and the backbone of the Blackfish cooperative, where he was a member from 1982. His Miró-esque use of line and space, and his affection for certain animals – dogs, fish and monkeys – add a deceptive whimsy to his raw, unflinching eye for politics and human foibles. Viewing paintings such as No Wake Zone we can reflect on his legacy, and whether he left a wake or not.
