Lulu Yee: 'I am attracted to you.'
This event is in the past
Nov 1–Dec 15, 5–8 pm, ended Dec 15, 2019
Bushwick-based artist Lulu Yee’s ceramic figures have power. That is certain. When I visited the exhibition at cogean? gallery in Bremerton (the home of artists Joey Veltkamp and Ben Gannon), I was immediately struck by the playful joyousness of Yee’s work. Her gnomes come from the depths of the kindest imagination, reminiscent of real-life animals combined with ones that crawl out of flower-filled dreams: sloths that walk like llamas, dogs with the grace of cows, etc. Yee often photographs her creations in situ, the bright ceramic figures contrasted against the craggy landscapes of Iceland and Montana (two places she also calls home). by Stranger Staff Writer Jas Keimig
