Aaron Li-Hill – “Here Now” @ Portsmouth Museum of Art

A couple weekends ago, the Portsmouth Museum of Art hosted a two day only event entitled Here Now. The showcase featured the work of Aaron Li-Hill and Judith Ann Braun, who both produced site specific installations. For his part, the New York-based Li-Hill created one of his kinetic fencer murals, augmented by a loosely constructed scaffold of material. Taking advantage of the space currently being renovated, the kinetic installation with the reflecting water produced a striking image. Photos via artist except portrait by Bear Kirkpatrick.

Openings: Peter Ferguson – “Fire In The Map Room!” @ Roq la Rue

Last Friday, opening alongside CRG (covered) at Roq La Rue in Seattle was Peter Ferguson’s Fire In The Map Room! Dimly lit interiors and the moments right before dusk are exquisitely detailed in a muted color palette, with a style honed from his many years illustrating children’s books. The imaginative beasts inhabit Peter’s worlds nonchalantly, and while the human characters seemed intrigued at times, others seem bored or annoyed, like it’s an everyday occurrence. With backgrounds just as detailed as the main subject, one could spend […]
