Anyone close to a crafter knows about “the good scissors.” The ones where, if used on the wrong material, become a very sharp, precise weapon from a rightfully wronged maker!
This December, Push/Pull is presenting a group show of 10+ local fiber artists - from cross-stitch/embroidery to macramé, crochet and knitting to tapestry - exploring textures in textiles. This is the first fiber art show at Push/Pull’s new location, and we are thrilled to present this intricate and dynamic artwork.
The opening reception will take place on December 15, 2022 from 6-9pm (a Third Thursday event by Bal-Art).
All work will be shown until January 18, 2023.
Seattle artist Seth Goodkind brings a whole new body of work to the public for the first time! Join us at Push/Pull from 6-9pm for the opening reception (a Third Thursday event by Bal-Art).
“Cognitive Dissidents is my first 3-D art show. I have always enjoyed building models and working with miniatures, but over the last 5 years as my drawing and tattoo work has transitioned to digital and became a “job,” miniatures increasingly took over as my creative outlet. I love the idea of enclosed worlds. They have a quality of unreality that is isolated from our touch. The scenes feel living, but unreal, there is something inside of them that I’m not the architect of – I’m just giving them the opportunity to exist. Each piece comes together almost as a stream of consciousness assemblage, as an idea strikes me, and I find themes, scales, locations and elements that when put together, challenge or defy our sense of expected reality.”
Seth Goodkind is a tattoo artist at True Love Tattoo and a founding member of Push/Pull, an arts collective in Ballard, Seattle.
Cognitive Dissidents will be on display November 17th through December 14th.
