New York artist Jean Shin is working with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) and its design team to incorporate art at new facilities at the transfer station during Phase II of the project. By referencing the topography of the site before 1966 when the North Transfer Station was built, RECLAIMED brings the memory of the former landscape to the new Transfer Station plaza.
The artwork expresses these natural forms through the use of industrial materials—10,000 linear feet of rebar that will be reclaimed from the site during the upcoming demolition of the current NTS building. Liberated from the architectural structure, the recycled rebar will form the organic, colorful linear contours of the previously existing landscape into sculptural forms. Additionally colored pathways will cut through the landmasses to create topography through the plaza.

The gallery is thrilled to announce The J. Paul Getty Museum has acquired the hand-made book GRFALWKV by artist Christopher Russell for their Permanent Collection.
The J. Paul Getty Museum seeks to inspire curiosity about, and enjoyment and understanding of, the visual arts by collecting, conserving, exhibiting and interpreting works of art of outstanding quality and historical importance. To fulfill this mission, the Museum continues to build its collections through purchase and gifts, and develops programs of exhibitions, publications, scholarly research, public education, and the performing arts that engage our diverse local and international audiences. The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center in Los Angeles houses European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, decorative arts, and photography from its beginnings to the present, gathered internationally.
Dealing less with the supernatural than the psychosomatic, Christopher Russell rouses ghosts. Within his scratched photographs, fractured glass panes, and hazy metallic paints, there are haunting recollections – the kind of outlier memories that plague our psyche well after childhood. Through a purposefully repressive fog, we habitually revisit the monsters of our innermost mentality, and find ourselves the protagonist of a lifelong plight – a cinematic tale evocatively illustrated by Russell’s eerie ships and spectral trees. Like a folkloric odyssey into a cognitive web, his mixed-media works and installations traipse through places of fragility and wistfulness; evidence of the divine and unsettling encounters inherent to our complex mortality.
We wish to congratulate Christopher on this major milestone!

Jason Salavon‘s solo exhibition All the Ways has been reviewed by Bridget Gleeson for Artsy.
“If the latest works by Jason Salavon remind you of a broken computer monitor or a scrambled TV screen when the cable is out, you’ve already picked up on a few of the artist’s primary interests: pop culture, consumerism, and human interaction with digital images.”
