“Exploratory Line: Moving Target”
Address: 1718 East Olive Way, Suite A, Seattle WA 98102
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 13, 2017, 5-9pm
Martha Dunham will show recent work inspired by conversations in the local art scene. Renowned for her pioneering study of territorial behavior, Dunham produces art that commands space with superb economy of means. Her meandering line is as fractal as a coastline and her sculptural work balances in the moment, fragile-appearing yet durable.
“My wire sculptures are formed of one unbroken line to illustrate unity of purpose as well as the unity of all life on this planet. I think of the line as a point that moves through space like a path that leads right back to the starting point. On a plane, the line of the path acts as a barrier surrounding gerrymandered territory. The line signifies a discussion, winding through the ages and echoing with humanity.”
Dunham has exhibited in New York City; Silver Spring, Maryland; Tampa, Florida; Blaine, Bellingham and Seattle, Washington. Her sculpture is in the permanent collection of the Jewish Community Center in Tucson, Arizona as well as in private collections in the States and abroad.
