Material Morphologies: Alan Fulle
For the past 35 years, Seattle artist Alan Fulle has explored the limits of painting, sculpture, public art, and video as his interest in abstraction took him from a BFA in painting from University of Washington in 1989 to gallery representation at William Traver for the past 17 years; his work is also in galleries in Toronto and Portland (OR) and has been shown at Museum of Glass Tacoma, Bellevue Art Museum, and Museum of Northwest Art. Fascinated by the inherent properties of different materials, Fulle developed a process to bring painting and sculpture together through resin.
Fulle’s newest work, an experimental installation using video and glass (Lighting the Lens), was funded in part by 4Culture and City of Shoreline and will be unveiled at an artist’s reception at City Hall on Thursday, December 14, 6:30pm – 8:30pm. In addition to Lighting the Lens, the exhibition also includes Black Tower, Fulle’s newest tower sculpture, as well as his abstract paintings. On view through March 30, 2018, M-F, 9:00-5:00, http://shorelinewa.gov/art; http://alanfulle.com; http://travergallery.com
City Hall is located at 17500 Midvale Ave N. in Shoreline, 10 miles north of downtown Seattle, with ample parking and nearby amenities.
Material Morphologies will also include results from an outdoor installation at Shoreview Park (Shoreline), featuring a solar powered video projector in the woods made possible through a collaboration with Workshop 3d. A looping slideshow will offer the results of an experiment with augmented-reality content generated by vintage-style Forest Service signs, part of the City’s Augmented Nature grant from 4Culture.
