APEX

Claudia Fitch

MAY 5 – AUG 12, 2012

Whimsically reinventing icons from popular culture and art history, Seattle artist Claudia Fitch seeks to expose a connection between the cultural and the personal. Fitch employs diverse materials to visually animate architecturally specific installations.

Using flocking, plastic foliage, glazed ceramic, and fabricated steel allows the artist to invent unique and imaginative works. She states, “I am on the lookout for wholly unexpected behaviors where the very familiar can also be very strange.” Essentially Postmodern in approach, her primarily sculptural work transforms the gallery and titillates its viewers.

APEX is an ongoing series of exhibitions showcasing Northwest-based artists and curated by Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson, The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Northwest Art. Supported in part by the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Endowments for Northwest Art, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, and the Exhibition Series Sponsors.
