As much as I love the quiet of rural settings, there is something undeniably appealing about the structures in urban life. As we were showing Mr. F’s sister around Seattle last week, she was in awe of the architecture and I was reminded, too, to look up and around and take notice. The work of artist Daniel Everett takes those intriguing bits of urbanity and isolates them in all their glory.
Sometimes, the structure is set starkly against a colorful, seemingly computer generated hue, and then others seem to almost melt into a white sky, pastel lines graphically juxtaposed. Everett is taking those slices of urban infrastructure and challenging us to see them in a new way, for someone, this is the spot where they spend each day, perhaps a job they worked hard to get or their refuge from the rest of the world.
And just because it’s awesome and I loved it too much to not include it, I give you..
