Opening Thursday, May 6, 2021: ISOLATION: Anouk Rawkson

| May 2, 2021

The ISOLATION series is a project that started in March 2020 when we had to go into quarantine due to Covid-19. My living room floor became my art studio and every day I would paint or sculpt my feelings, anxiety, and frustrations. Using only Japanese Sumi ink, heavy white paper, and foam sculpting clay for the sculptures I would paint a symbol, shape, or object with closed eyes mimicking mental sounds, emotions and focusing on a word that expressed my feelings from that day onto paper forming a weekly visual journal. The series came to an end in November 2020. Selected works from the series have been curated for this exhibition. 

About Rawkson:
The Mexican American Seattle-based artist, Anouk Rawkson, is walking into a new era of his artistry expressing his culture and inspiring subcultures. Working in abstracts and mixed mediums his works are recognized by bold strong strokes, elusive symbols, visual puns, and an underlying texture of frustration. He is self-educated in the arts and has lived in Paris and New York, seeking guidance from his peers and stimulus from his travels, getting inspiration from his surroundings. Rawkson acts also as a curator. One of the shows he has co-curated for the past 6 years is Imminent Mode, a continuous show that brings together artists working in different mediums who end up creating something on the verge of fashion and visual arts; something that is both wearable art and a gallery installation.
