BONFIRE Chinatown-International District

In 2014, Jen Graves wrote, "Lifelong, die-hard leftist Deborah Faye Lawrence tends her politics like a gardener and a folksinger: with her hands and her voice. The Seattle collage artist has an alter ego named Dee Dee, a high-foreheaded pre-modern creature who wreaks subversion across Lawrence's brightly cobbled together landscapes. Together they commandeer and remake maps, histories, and laws written and unwritten in bravura performances—but the means couldn't be more humble, just bits of paper cut and glued to form mandalas, new galaxies." This new exhibit will feature works in which Deborah Faye Lawrence (or Dee Dee) will use "satirical collage as a political and psychological tool."
This exhibit is open to the public from August 2-6, and will subsequently be available for viewing by appointment (206.790.1073).
