Artist Rachel Campbell brings an upbeat collection of bike paintings in oil to Zinc Art + Interiors from July 17- August 18. The show opens with a big bike bang on July 17th from 5-8 with Chris Freed, owner of Salty Bicycles out of Ballard, hand crafting one-of-a kind bikes on site. Rachel will also be creating limited edition prints on Zinc’s etching press during the month of her show.
“My work is best described as a very specific form of documentary,” Rachel said. “I am constructing a body of work that depicts and interprets the complex interactions between our objects, our interiors, and our environments.”
Rachel Campbell’s artistic painting pieces invite the viewer to consider what the objects in our lives invariably say about our own selves. In her show at Zinc, she asks us to consider the insights our bikes have to say about us.
“I feel that a bicycle is an extension of you and should reflect your riding style, whether it’s on your commute to work or taking a beating at the Saturday criterium,” Chris Freed stated.
So what does your bike say about you? Bring or ride your bike to Zinc’s opening night or anytime from July 17-August 18 and find out.
