Seattle. A veritable epicenter of all things "indie-rock." But
what about the art scene? While there are a few spots about town
that are indeed showcasing some very nice work (i'd like to take
this opportunity to to give a strong wuddup to Cairo,
which just opened on capitol hill), the majority of artists must
resign to hang the fruits of their labors on the walls of ubiquitous
coffee shops about town. And why not? Seattle-ites drink more coffee
than water anyway. It's called taking advantage of a captive audience.
In any case, I discovered one of the most mind-blowing "artist
statements" of all time while waiting for my 12 oz double
soy latte at Victrola (i know!!! so seattle, right?!?!?). Please
enjoy an excerpt, below, accompanied by an example of the work
to the right.
