About the Artist

Shawn Landis (Seattle) received a 2007 GAP to help offset the cost of a December 2007 show at 4Culture Gallery, Seattle. Landis 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, Landis is interested in “defining the negative space around objects in our daily landscape and revealing the shape of air.”
