Joe Feddersen: Echo
Froelick Gallery, Portland, OR - Dec 3, 2019 – Jan 11, 2020
Electricity towers, canoes, deer, peace signs – they all float together and apart in the world of Joe Federsen. Here his experimental prints pulse with graphic possibilities as he blends the naïf, the Native and the pop pixels of the 21st century. While his stick figures cavort with a Keith Haring–like freedom, grooves and carving marks in the background interfere deliciously with the narrative surface. A member of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Feddersen formerly taught at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
