You’re gonna want to get up close and personal with these original drawings by @julie_alpert now in the shop. I love Alpert’s large-scale, colorful installations—she creates worlds you want to live inside. These original drawings are a small piece of that world, the working out of new ideas happens in these drawings, the exploration of texture and color and pattern. Consider these the postcard you bring home. #seattleartist #seattle.

Warm-ups 💦 I make hundreds of small drawings each year to work out color, composition and visual motifs for upcoming large-scale installations.

Tbt this small detail of my 23-foot installation Three Generations of Decorations @macdowellcolony in 2014. Most of the installation was made from items scavenged at the Peterborough recycling center. Those are egg carton shadows painted on the wall 🥚🔦 .

Who needs a living room when you could have a studio? Buh-bye fireplace that’s never worked 🔥🔨💦

Lucky me 🧜‍♀️ One last visit. See you next week Seattle!
