Seattle’s maritime history and the waterfront’s proximity prompted the artist to imagine Suyama Space as a bridge between the built environment and the natural world.

Viewed from either end of the gallery, the rows of hot-glue strands appear as receding horizontal waves of geometric abstraction. Catalogue, essay by Robin Updike.
