The work seen here is a brief visual commentary that refers mostly to urban landscapes. This project, tracking changes and the “New Topography”, began in earnest at the beginning of the last decade. It seemed timely given the warnings that cities were due to be reshaped to accommodate an economy that supports the technological age, meaning that infrastructures were going to be rebuilt so that cities could experience the population growth necessary to keep this new world order humming.

I began a habit of persistent walking and documenting buildings, neighborhoods and construction sites as an urban Street Photographer. Have always been interested in the decisions made that argue against keeping an existing sense of place in favor of creating more density. Am concerned about gentrification that results in shifting or losing the cultural foundation of a neighborhood. I am also interested in bringing to the forefront clues about anonymous people seen and how they move in impersonal spaces or through a concrete, steel and glass landscape. The urban environment often is hard edge and stark.

The photographs are mostly from Seattle. Some were seen in prior exhibitions at Gallery 110 or in other area shows. Others have never been seen in Seattle.

I make unique prints or small editions of 5. I am not interested in mass production. All this work is printed with pigment ink on rag papers meaning it should last beyond most of our lifetimes if kept out of intense light. These images, although quasi-documentary and interpretive, are fine art and not so different than prints made using photographic techniques part of the printmaker’s edition… like a photo etching or gravure. Both require planning and decisions about composition as well as technical skill. Yes, photos are everywhere and everyone seems to be taking them. Intent and process though give meaning to the work and that is the clue.

A Pet Project

1st annual fundraiser exhibition benefiting Pioneer Square’s Doney Coe Pet Clinic.
December 5 – 28, 2019
Exhibition Reception: December 28, 5 – 9 pm

Every year, the Doney Coe Pet Clinic helps over a thousand families experiencing homelessness in an unconventional, but immensely significant way: by offering free veterinary services and resources to homeless and low income families. 100% Volunteer-run, the Doney Coe Pet Clinic opens its doors in Pioneer Square every other Saturday, starting at 1pm. Their services are so valuable to those they help, that families often start lining up at 8am, rain or shine, waiting hours to receive care for their pets, everything ranging from wellness checks to flea treatments to vaccinations and more. Many pet owners experiencing homelessness are likely to tend to their animal companion’s needs before their own. Continue reading

Down the Rabbit Hole

Katherine Loveland
November 7 – 30, 2019

First Thursday: November 7, 5 – 8pm
Artist Meet-and-Greet: November 30, 2 – 4pm

From the artist:
In this series I provide viewers abstract macrophotographic images of nature and with them the opportunity to delve into an exploration of the personal unknown. Their reactions to the images have the potential to increase viewers’ self-awareness of the psychic layers of themselves, others and the world.

We Were the Places That We Wanted to Go

Featuring Phantoms in the Front Yard
October 3 – November 2, 2019
First Thursday: October 3, 5 – 8pm
Artists’ Reception: October 5, 5 – 7:30pm

Gallery 110 welcomes the Vancouver-based collective, Phantoms in the Front Yard, with work by Michael Abraham, Jeremiah Birnbaum, Andrea Hooge, Paul Morstad, Jay Senetchko, Jonathan Sutton and guest artist Marcus MacLeod.

Reflecting on the concept of what constitutes legacy, We Were the Places That We Wanted to Go explores the theme of passing life’s lessons down from one generation to the next. Drawing from a range of contexts such as personal narrative, nostalgia, pop culture and climate change, as well as using the figure as subject, the Phantoms invite the viewer to interpret the relevance, permanence and effect legacy has on its inherent recipient.

Phantoms in the Front Yard (PITFY) is a figurative collective founded in 2010, with exhibitions occurring in alternative venues and dedicated to creating an experience of figurative art for all, not just among academics and industry veterans.

More information about the Phantoms can be found here.
