July 7 – 30, 2022
Gallery 110 is excited to present Recommence, a collaborative seven member show serving as a continuation of our booth at the Seattle Art Fair.
Recommence represents that which begins again, a nod to the art fair returning as well as to the celebration of many of our members showing work together after many years – or for the very first time entirely. With an exciting mix of long term and brand new Gallery 110 members exhibiting together, Recommence is a joyous gathering among our artist community.
Matthew Behrend, who’s PhD research was in the first FDA approved retinal prosthesis for restoring sight, is a metal patina artist making work that connects to meditative or spiritual spaces beyond our senses and perceptions. Marie Okuma Johnston’s art is a safe space where she unpacks what it means to navigate a world where one is neither quite American nor Japanese, with many of her current pieces focusing on community healing, current events, and the presence of yōkai (spirits/ghosts) in modern society. Angshuman Sarkar tries to capture how landscape is shaped through forces of man or nature through time with his black and white landscape photographs. Nahom Ghirmay’s work explores identity and emotional experiences through different mediums; he’s always been fascinated with how we are able to convey countless emotions through facial expressions and body gestures. In its entirety, Recommence is a collection that acknowledges the necessity of natural cycles, reflection and community.
