(Sub)Urban

Presenting the contemporary works of Seattle artists Greg Boudreau, Kate Protage and Kellie Talbot whose work explores the urban landscapes throughout the Seattle area and beyond. Each artist uses photography as the starting point to their paintings, but come to a very different conclusion with their finished pieces. Talbot’s work deftly captures and documents the lost craftsmanship of American artifacts and signage and meticulously replicates the deterioration and faded glory of past times. Boudreau utilizes an excruciatingly long process of photographing and separating out the multiple layers of his photographs and hand cuts each of them into a stencil, using aerosols to recreate the scene. While Protage takes the best pieces of her photographs, melds them together and uses them to create evening cityscapes that give the viewer a hauntingly familiar feel.
