Gary Faigin: When Furniture Expresses Hope And Sorrow
Furniture is always there when we need it. You can count on those chairs, couches and beds for support. But, does that mean you have a relationship with it? Seattle's Roy McMakin would say yes.
Roy is a Seattle architect and fine–furniture maker. He's also a furniture artist. And his latest exhibit is called, "I Continue to Believe in the Potential to Express Hope and Sorrow through Furniture." It's on display at Western Bridge.
Even though Seattle artist and art critic Gary Faigin has been confused by Roy's work in the past, he recommends checking out this exhibit. Gary says that once he realized Roy was tackling deep subjects through furniture, he walked away from the show looking at everyday objects in a whole new way.
"I Continue to Believe in the Potential to Express Hope and Sorrow through Furniture" is on display at Seattle's Western Bridge through July 28, 2012.
