The newest face at the Seattle Sculpture Park

wpid-20140622_174052.jpgRecently I was in Seattle with out of town friends, and it was a beautiful day. We walked down to the Seattle Art Museum’s Sculpture Park.  The sky was so blue, a light breeze in the air and with old friends as company, it was a wonderful break from the hubbub of the downtown scene.

If you have never been to the Olympic Sculpture Park, I would suggest that this summer, make it a point to visit. Here you can see works by  Alexander Calder, Richard Serra, Louise Bourgeois and Tony Smith, major sculptors with large and vibrant works against the back drop of the city’s waterfront stretching across to the Olympic mountains.

The newest piece by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa entitled  Echo (2011), is a very dramatic 46-foot tall white figurative sculpture. Echo was given to the Seattle Art Museum from the collection of Barney A. Ebsworth.

“Echo was modeled on the 9-year old daughter of a restaurant owner near the artist’s studio in Barcelona. With computer modeling, Plensa elongates and abstracts the girl’s features. The sculpture references Echo, the mountain nymph from Greek mythology. As told in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Echo offended the goddess Hera by keeping her engaged in conversation, and preventing her from spying on one of Zeus’s amours. To punish Echo, Hera deprived the nymph of speech, except for the ability to repeat the last words of another. Plensa created this monumental head of Echo, listening with her eyes closed or in a state of meditation. The artist envisions Echo to look out over Puget Sound in the direction of Mount Olympus.

“Many times we talk and talk,” Plensa said in an interview for theNew York Times about Echo in 2011, “but we are not sure if we are talking with our own words or repeating just messages that are in the air. My intention is to offer something so beautiful that people have an immediate reaction, so that they think, ‘What’s happening?’ And then maybe they can listen a little bit to themselves.”

Later walking around on Capital Hill on our way to dinner, I saw this shot and well I couldn’t help myself :-) Happy Sunny days

Hmm so what does this piece say?

I ‘ve been seeking a contemporary realistic figurative painter for many years. The gallery currently represents are two figurative painters, Tom Rierden and Cathy Schoenberg. Both highly stylized with their own unique vocabulary and color palette.

While traveling, I came across Anelecia’s works, and felt that this immediate connection to the works. The paintings are emotional, well painted with the feeling of an old and intimate, friend…. A  memory.
