Negative Capability: The Artist As Healer
Gallery 110, Seattle, WA - Jan 5 - 28, 2023
From the intimate interior of the studio to the killing fields of Ukraine, guest curator Saundra Fleming has found artists whose portraits and self-portraits double as therapeutic strategies for both creator and viewer. Working in various styles, these13 artists with international backgrounds explore representations of the individual in a world fraught with conflict. Of particular note are the gender-blurring masquerades of Carol Adelman Kennedy and the wrenching sight of Aleksandar Djordjevic watching bodies pile up in Ukraine.
