AXIS Pioneer Square: 308 1st Avenue South | Seattle WA 98104
PARALLELS: Tracy Boyd and Tatjana Pavicevic
On view from April 3, 2014 – April 28, 2014. Opening reception on Thursday, April 3 from 5-9pm during the First Thursday art walk.
Gallery AXIS presents two artists with very distinct styles who’ve come together to explore the struggles of society and how they parallel with the internal struggles of the individual. Characterized by motion and her use of reclaimed tarps, Tracy Boyd’s life-sized paintings come alive. Her large, colorful animals symbolizing social domination contrast with Tatjana Pavicevic’s intimate graphite drawings. Pavicevic’s monochromatic work creates a sense of self-inquiry and explores subjective experiences and their parallels in the external world.
Originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tatjana Pavicevic has lived in Seattle for ten years. She received a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts where she majored in painting and printmaking.
Tracy Boyd grew up in the 1970’s and 1980’s on a 66-acre old farm outside of Philadelphia, which allowed her to develop the ability to be independent and introspective. She received a BFA from Carnegie Mellon with an emphasis on Design.
The artists will be in attendance at the opening reception with a performance by Coriolis Dance taking place throughout the evening.
Coriolis Dance is an immersive, contemporary dance company led by multi-media artist/dancer Christin Call and celebrated local dancer/choreographer Natascha Greenwalt. Since 2008 the pair, as Co-artistic Directors and Co-founders, have commissioned new works by locally and nationally known choreographers as well as created new works for the company in collaboration with artists of multiple disciplines.
The opening reception for Parallels will take place on April 3, 2014 from 5 to 9 PM.
