Oscar Tuazon: Collaborator

May 10 - September 15, 2019

With confluent roots in conceptualism, vernacular architecture, and his own roughhewn brand of minimalism, Tuazon often works with steel, glass, and concrete as well as two-by-fours, tree trunks, found objects, and existing cultural fragments. The result is an immersive, sensorial relationship with both site and viewer that encourages audience interaction and inquiry. As the scale and intensity of his do-it-yourself aesthetic overturns the spatial conditions of viewing, sculpture becomes both a tense to inhabit and a series of gestures that can appear to be in motion, still unfolding.

Simon Hanselmann: Bad Gateway

April 12 - August 11, 2019

A writer of exceptional pathos and insight and a graphic artist of extraordinary depth, Simon Hanselmann has been telling stories and writing comics since the late 1980s. Originally from Tasmania, Hanselmann settled in Seattle in 2016. He began his artistic career In Australia by producing small-run zines at the age of eight and reluctantly moved his work to the web in 2012, recognizing its potential for a far wider distribution. His dynamic saga of low-rent, drug-addled loser-dom, Megg, Mogg & Owl began as an obscure underground zine series in 2009 and virally took off within weeks on his Tumblr blog, Girl Mountain. His characters, the depressive Megg (a green-skinned witch), her boyfriend Mogg (an actual cat), and their normie roommate Owl (a vaguely humanoid owl), soon became ubiquitous in the world of comics, online and in print.
