Emily Wood – Installation Video

Take a virtual walkthrough of Emily Wood’s exhibition, “From Here to There and Back Again.”  Wood, a Tacoma native, explores lands that are most familiar to her in order to discover them in new ways. Her paintings portray scenes of mountain lakes, tree-lined ridges, winding rivers, coastal views, and cultivated fields from Oregon to Montana to Eastern and Western Washington. She depicts them with varied brush technique, and dynamic compositions. Wood’s oil paintings are characterized by a saturated palette, simplified shapes and deepening shadows.

Joel Brock – Installation Video

Enjoy viewing an installation of paintings by Northwest artist Joel Brock (1961- 2013) at Harris Harvey Gallery in Seattle, Washington. Utilizing pastel, charcoal, graphite, acrylic, and gesso, Brock created light-filled compositions based upon observations of architecture, still life, and the landscape. Important to him were the possibilities a given subject affords to play with light, shape, and form. His tendency toward abstraction, especially in his later works, is evident in compositions with strong geometry and gestural mark making.

John McCormick – Installation Video

Revel in a walkthrough of John McCormick’s exhibition, Wild Life and Other Topics. McCormick is a Northern California painter who is best known for his luminous landscapes of vast vistas featuring wetlands, hills and valleys, and the sea. McCormick’s oil paintings convey a sense of the sublime in nature and as such are a subjective response to nature rather than documentation of the world he sees. Using finely tuned compositional elements, and tonal color, McCormick creates work that is a synthesis of contemporary and classical impulses.
