Tennis, Anyone?

Whiting Tennis, White Knight, 2010 (cast plaster)

Walleyed, a show of new work by Seattle artist Whiting Tennis, opens tonight at Greg Kucera. Tennis's work doesn't translate extremely well from a distance but I'm excited to see the show in person. Over at best of, D.W. Burnam shares his thoughts about Tennis (he has a "propensity for cataloging objects rendered soft by neglect and disuse" and "engineers a kind of dilapidated-baroque").

Tractor, 2010 (acrylic on canvas)

Fridge, 2010 (found masonite and plywood)

The opening is from 6-8 pm (better hurry). Or, if you're planning to be downtown on Saturday the 22nd, consider stopping by the gallery at noon to hear the artist talk.
