Tatiana Garmendia & Tara McDermott (Oct 10 – Nov 28, 2017)

Tatiana Garmendia is an inter-disciplinary artist with a figurative twist. Her work synthesizes formal concerns and a humanist engagement with history and culture. “History is not a subject I just picked up from a dusty schoolbook, but things I’ve actually lived. I remember playing in abandoned missile trenches as a child,” says the artist.

Garmendia is the recipient of a WA State Artist Fellowship, Pollock Krasner Foundation Fellowship, and CityArtists Grant. Her work has exhibited abroad and throughout the United States, including The Bronx Museum of Arts, Art In General, and Stux Gallery in New York.  Her works are in public collections in New York, Miami, Illinois, California, Ohio, and Washington DC. The artist is tenured faculty at Seattle Central College, where she has been teaching painting, drawing, and printmaking since 1993.

 

Tatiana talks about her art:

I was born in Cuba and interned in a camp for political dissidents as a child. Because I lived through extreme encounters with society, I am interested in how the body acts as the agent, measure, and sum of physical and cultural substance. It senses, remembers, and reports on lived experiences. This series was inspired by some of my students– warrior artists entering the civilian population after their brushes with death. For the Queror series I asked student veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to choose poses from Michelangelo’s masterpiece The Last Judgment, in memory of those who had fallen. The oil portraits are painted directly on fabric currently used by the US military. Here, camo is the fabric that grounds the image, and like the existential suffering of those who have worn the uniform in war, it never comes off.   

10% of sales from this series will be donated directly to VA Puget Sound Health Care System.

Tara McDermott is a photographic artist who explores ideas of beauty and fantasy in the natural world. She holds a BFA in photography from the University of Washington and exhibits at the Columbia City Gallery in Seattle, WA. Originally born in Long Island, NY, she has lived more than half her life in Seattle, trading one coastline for another. After a 5-year hiatus, she returned with a renewed dedication to art making in 2014. She has expanded from straight photography to incorporating encaustic and other media and by using layered film collaged imagery. Her studio is located in the Inscape Arts Building in South Seattle. She describes her work as an attempt to create emotive portraits of places, both real and imaginary. Tara takes photos with a vintage film-based Hasselblad medium-format camera and occasionally with a handmade teak pinhole (lensless) camera.

Tara talks about her art:

I’m a photographic and encaustic artist that uses the camera to record the sublime found in ordinary surroundings. The subject matter of my work stems from a love and obsession with the natural world. It is a place I find comfort and where my imagination runs wild. To create these works, I overlap layers of film, then scan them together. I add color, digitally, to increase the sense of atmosphere. Encaustic (beeswax mixed with resin) is melted and applied to the surface, which adds texture and mystery. The mundane becomes transformed into an ethereal dreamscape. Fragments of dreams and splinters of true seeing are melded together in a series that explores multiplicity of vision, of thought. Is it real, or is it imagined? Or is it somewhere in between?

Larissa Yue

I was born in 2005 in Pittsburgh, where my parents were attending Carnegie Mellon University. I moved to Washington with my parents when I was 4 years old. I am now a student in Medina Elementary School. My hobbies include table tennis, skiing, piano, and art. I started to draw at a very young age and started to learn from a teacher around 6 years old. I love drawing because I can draw anything that I want and be free.

Larissa speaks about her art: As early as I could start to hold a pencil, I started to doodle on my grandpa’s books or any paper I could get a hold of. Eventually, I started learning about art and the more I learned, the more I loved drawing. Drawing is a way to create your dream and your imagination. In drawing, anything is possible. Drawing is a way for people to know my ideas and to express my love for art. 

 

Amy Wang

I’m 7 years old and a second grade student in Medina Elementary school. I’m a happy girl. I was born in New Jersey. I spent 2 years in California before I moved to Washington State. Now I live in Bellevue with my family. I love drawing pictures since I was little. I started drawing lessons with teacher Long Gao from May 2016.

Amy speaks about his art: My pictures are based on the basic color pencil drawing skills I learned from my teacher Long Gao.
