Archaic Revival -
at the TBD Community Space & Gallery
Visual and kinetic artist Bobbin started Breakin in the Northwest HIP HOP scene in 1997. The movement and expression of the dance captures a subconscious archive full
of life and raw emotion. Through cyphers, Breakin embodies a communal language for diverse individuals to share complex experiences and witness each person's perspective.
Recently, Bobbin began translating this subconscious internal dialog into a visual medium. Using canvases and large pieces of reclaimed wood, Bobbin creates acrylic and sumi ink abstractions. In his own words, “This shedding and surrendering to the raw power of improvised movement and emotion is done abstractly, helping express complex perspectives in a stark and ever changing representation. The feeling of losing it all, but finding it at the same time in the organized chaos of the universe.”
Beacon Arts is excited to share Bobbin’s unique intersection of B-boying and a visual medium at the TBD Community Arts Space. Closing Celebration includes Dance Demos, Music, Gallery Show and Cash Bar. Show closes 1/20. Stop in to experience something truly unique in Seattle!
Opening January 27, 4-8pm
