Lisa Kinoshita and S. Surface: The West


SOIL (map) Pioneer Square
Thurs-Sun. Through May 27

Susan Surface

Recommended by Emily Pothast

For many city dwellers, the realities of life in rural America are an impenetrable mystery. Not so for S. Surface and Lisa Kinoshita, both Japanese American artists raised in Tacoma. For more than a decade, both artists have used photography and sculpture to capture their lived histories both in and relative to the American West. S. Surface's photographs of bulls, bloody bruises, and dive-bar neon signs document the artist's five-year stint as a competitive bull rider. While Lisa Kinoshita's metalsmithing, leatherwork, and mixed-media sculpture reflect the interplay between social and natural history (and include a collaboration made with prison inmates in Montana).
