Show with Jessica Hoffman and Markel Uriu at SOIL Gallery, Seattle, WA
Intimately Unseen is an investigation of personal space, growth, and tension by Seattle-based artists Jessica Hoffman, Satpreet Kahlon, and Markel Uriu. This exhibition includes installations, drawings, paintings, and prints that explore the ritual of seeking and creating space. Coming from different cultural backgrounds, all three artists are trying to find a place where they belong, a place where they feel safe, and a place where they can grow.
For this show, Kahlon created a capsule-like box which contains detritus of past and future works, pieces which, when culminated in one space, act as testaments to self-created systems of survival developed as an attempt to cope with and survive through the inherent trauma of living as a first-generation woman of color in the United States.
