"Dreaming Home in Pink" by Sue Danielson
We are pleased to announce the third show in our series at Sightline Institute in downtown Seattle. Seattle artist Sue Danielson has her
“Dislocation” series on display through the end of October.
On view are 15 acrylic paintings, some with collage elements and ink as well. In mostly muted tones with splashes of brighter color, Sue’s paintings depict “the disparity between reality and dreams of home.” Prompted by recent events in her life and in the world around her, Sue has explored and investigated this gap. She says,
It seemed that the meaning of home was shifting around me. I began to wonder how much our longing for home is purely emotional once we move beyond the need for physical shelter. It occurred to me that home is a symbol of our imaginings. I am interested in what happens when reality and dreams of home do not quite line up. The desire to put this into two-dimensional space is what compels me to paint.
Sue Danielson has studied under Paul McCall, Julia Hensley, and Michael Howard and is inspired by the landscape and environment of the Pacific Northwest where she has lived most of her life. A proud Sightline donor for several years, Sue currently lives in Seattle and paints in her studio at Ballard’s Building C. You can catch her in her studio on the Second Saturday of the month during Ballard’s Art Walk.
To view her art at Sightline during September and October, visit the office between 10am and 3pm on weekdays. All 15 pieces are available for purchase.
