Link to images from the exhibition.
While the photographs that make up Platform's exhibition “In Between Days” are by two artists with very different experiences and perspectives, the “landscapes” observed by these artists go far in telling us about what happens around us when we aren't necessarily lookingin the in between moments.
Kevin O'Connell has been exhibiting his photographic images since the early 1990s. The work in “In Between Days” is taken from a body of photographs called Nocturn, made in the spring of 2007 while he was undergoing steroid treatments to counter complications from a bone marrow transplant. Insomnia, a side effect of the treatment, challenged Kevin to deal with the long, unoccupied hours of sleepless nights, pushing him out into the night into his sleeping yard to photograph, in ambient light, the mysteries that occur in between the daylight hours.
Kevin's work is included in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum, and the Biblioteque Nationale de France, Paris, as well as numerous corporate collections. He lives in Denver and this is his first exhibition in Seattle.
Adam Satushek pays close attention to the ways that human beings influence their surroundings through the traces that are left behind and the impact on the landscape from behaviors, movements, and alterations. His work captures the odd and unintended intersections of common, forgotten objects with the natural environment; an environment which then must bear the mark of that uninvited partnership and struggle mightily to maintain its dignity.
Adam graduated from the University of Washington with a BFA in Photography in 2006 and has exhibited at Rake Gallery in Portland and SOIL Gallery in Seattle. He lives in Seattle and will have a solo show in July of 2008 at Gallery 4Culture in Seattle.
