Artist: Michael Angelo Caci michaelcaci.com
Venue: Populuxe Brewing / 826 NW 49th St
Event: January 16th 6pm - 9pm
Showing: Month of January
Michael was born in upstate New York, attended Humboldt State University and the University of Washington. He settled in Seattle where he lives and works. His works are largely mixed media combining layers of photographic films, resin, paintings, metals, paper, reflective films and media.
As a high school student Michael won the industrial arts award in photography for studies of microscopic crystallization formations. At the University of Washington, he studied painting, printmaking and digital photography and began combining photographic and traditional painting and drawing processes with digital technologies. In the late 1990s he began experimenting with large format digital printers and software. These experiments created a new path for Michael’s artistic output and expression which continues in his current work.
Michael’s work is an expression of an experimentally curious mind. He likes to make more work for himself by posing disparate materials together in the tradition of Sigmar Polke; industrial materials, traditional paintings, photography both his own and appropriated from the web; a lifetime process that comes together and speaks of his concerns for the future of humanity and the planet.

Stop in to see the opening of Bondedpaper by Emrose in our Lavatory Gallery. We'll have art on display through June 15th.
Emrose is a Ballard-born papercrafter and mixed-media artist specializing in the formation of layers to convey her ideas. She graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in design and picked up her minimalist style from studying and working around the uncluttered design language that goes into product and user experience design. Combined with her love of needlepoint, her Bondedpaper line explores the intricate shapes and patterns of Shibari rope tying through paper and thread while staying true to the simplicity of minimalism. Bondedpaper started as a way to express sexuality in a simple and gentle way, and has since evolved to become an exploration of the human body and embroidery techniques. The neat, clean lines and methodical process of both Shibari and needlepoint illustrates the thought, patience, and perfectionism Emrose puts into all of her artwork. Other works of hers stay within the layered paper style of illustration, but are often larger and more detailed, using as many layers as the paper will support to show the depth of each piece.
