CASTING SHADOWS, my first solo exhibition, debuts September 9 – October 28, 2016 at the Jack Straw New Media Gallery in Seattle (read Stranger review here). Opening night is September 9 (7PM), the Artist Talk is September 30 (7PM), and the closing night event is October 28 (7PM) (Co-sponsored by Short Run Comix & Arts Festival).
CASTING SHADOWS is a multi-sensory video installation of comics that explore disability culture and the human experience. Projections of hand drawn comics and original soundscapes envelop the viewer in a wash of story. CASTING SHADOWS is a cultural conversation that considers themes of animal-human interdependence, aging and connection, family, the role of assistive technology, and home. CASTING SHADOWS has received support from Art Matters the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, the Jack Straw Foundation and the University of Washington Harlan Hahn Award.
