Bellevue Arts Museum Eastside
Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 22 2017
Tess Martin's story-driven animations vary wildly in terms of medium, and include paint on glass, marker on glass, photographs and cutouts on paper, and paint and people on a mural at Cal Anderson Park. Her latest short film, Ginevra, is based on Percy Shelley's emotional and unfinished poem of the same name, and this time features paper cut-outs filmed on a multi-plane animation stand with lights and colored filters. Some speculate that Shelley's poem is based on the true story of a woman who appeared to rise from the dead after a plague swept 13th-century Florence. At this exhibit, see the film as well as a selection of cut-outs.
