About the Artist

Shawn Landis (Seattle) received 2007 GAP Award funding to help offset the cost of a December 2007 show at 4Culture Gallery, Seattle. Shawn will surround objects found outdoors (i.e. logs, rocks, fire hydrants, swing set, garbage can, etc.) with inflatable forms comprised of orange fabric. The inflation and deflation of the fabric surrounding the objects will be on a timed cycle. Through his installations, he  is interested in “defining the negative space around objects in our daily landscape and revealing the shape of air.”
