Bridge Productions  This February, Bridge is pleased to introduce Seattle painter, print-maker, and multimedia artist Sue Danielson PERMEABILITY OF HARDNESS. Danielson’s work describes a critical, devoted attention to an accumulation of tangled line and amassed form, built from layers of paint and mixed media. Oftentimes the work resembles geographical topography data or a city map, thwarting our sense of scale; or a cryptic visual cipher in which we seek to resolve some recognizable object. Danielson’s newest body of work on paper and panel continues her exploration of maplike forms and treatise on memory and mark-making.
