August Art in the Annex: Nicollette Engels and Yelverton Freeman
Opening on Friday, August 3 for August Art Walk, this joint show betweenNicollette Engels and Yelverton Freeman will be on sale and on display through the entire month of August.
We are inherently drawn and connected to each other. Capturing what it means to engage and interact, the work of Nicollette Engels portrays raw, distorted depictions of the human mind and experience.
(Part of the ongoing “Murmurs” series by Yelverton Freeman)
Murmur (mur·mur). Noun – a soft, indistinct sound made by a person or group of people speaking quietly or at a distance.
Slough (sluff). Verb – to shed or remove (a layer of dead skin).
“Murmurs”, a multi-dimensional series by Seattle-based artist Yelverton Freeman, is an exploration of the echoing potential of vivid emotional memory on the moors of the human subconscious. Developed as a series of coping methods surrounding instances of love, loss and self-loathing, “Murmurs” attempts to alleviate the chatter of repetitive memory through evocative approaches to inner liberation. The components of “Slough”, in contrast to their more transitory predecessors in the greater “Murmurs” series, exist as externalized preservations of memory; delicately archived reminders of past lingering squalls.
