In "The Idaho Project," Seattle artist Scott Fife recreates the Steunenberg murder trial through a series of busts of the characters. Fife explains: "This is a public piece of sculpture, made to engage the viewer and inspire a sense of inquiry, and knowledge. I am working in a classical portrait style, using references to portraiture busts of the Roman Republican era, to portray the participants in this historic early twentieth century event. The Sculptures suggest determination, doubt, anxiety, authority, deceit and inscrutability. It is as if the busts were rediscovered with the passage of time and their origins somewhat unclear." Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
Color conveys meaning. Blue is the color of things infinite--of the ocean and the sky. Without shape or line, unattached to any object, the color blue can make us feel space, freedom, distance, openness and continuity--abstractions rooted in thousands of years of equating the limitless with blue. To see color, we need history, science, myth, religion, literature, psychology and a great many other disciplines, for the meaning of color is deeply ingrained in the evolution of our collective experience and traditions. The exhibition explores the symbolic, emotional and purely formal nature of all colors by focusing on one color, alone: blue. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
