Meet Susan Christian, featured artist for The Highest Tide
MEET THE ARTIST
Please join us on Thursday, February 27, at 5 pm in the State Theater Lobby for a reception honoring Susan Christian! Susan will also hold an Artist’s Talk after the Sunday matinee on March 15.
I am honored and excited to bring some of my work to Harlequin to coordinate with this presentation of The Highest Tide.
I live in a “house” built on pilings over Puget Sound tideland. Tides have both rocked me to sleep and risen up to terrorize me. I wouldn’t want to live some other way.
The framed pastel (below) shows a triple view looking east. It’s split because no one image of the bay can be completed before the tide shifts everything.
Most of these images are monoprints I did in the late ’90s when I just couldn’t get enough of the possibilities of mountain/water. The mountain, the old eyeful of Mt Rainier, does tend to dominate. Everything moves.
