Kim E Alexander Jr., Little Red Girl, and Si Clark at Suite 100’s Mecha/Organic

Seattle’s Suite 100 Gallery has put together a group show entitled Mecha/Organic for the month of October. It’s an exhibition that “combines, divides, and defines the line between mechanical and organic.” To work on that theory, they’ve gathered about a dozen artists of all different styles and genres. These are three of my personal favorites from the bunch.

An illustrator who grew up in a small village in the Cotswolds but now lives in London, Si Clark now mixes influences from his childhood countryside surroundings with his present urban living situation. His pieces are well-polished and sometimes gritty combinations of traditional and digital mediums.

Who knew that graphite and colored pencil drawings on frosted mylar could be so exciting? Kim E Alexander Jr. explorations of form and shape capture movement and pay careful attention to detail. Expect exciting new pieces from him at this group show.

Erin Kendig, or Little Red Girl, seems like a rather new player on the Seattle art scene, but her work has thus far been whole-heartedly embraced by the community. Her best pieces showcase organic, flowing shapes and expertly play on white space, using only watercolors and inks that are minimally necessary.
