Gallery 1855 Presents Seana Burke "Light on the Port"
Gallery 1855 at the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line Road, presents the new series by artist Seana Burke. “Light of the Port” captures the light and colors of the Port of West Sacramento and the deep ship channel she has witnessed as a rower.
The exhibition will run through Dec. 30, with a reception Sunday, Dec. 13, from 1 to 4 p.m. Burke has translated these into works on canvas, paper and large-scale mylar.
Burke was intrigued by the subtle shifts of the seasons and the major weather events and how the light is ever-changing. There were days in which the sky was bathed in cotton-candy pink and other days in battleship grey.
“Every day is different,” she said. “The sun dictates the temperature, the air dictates the saturation and the Earth, water and sky dictate the hue.”
Burke records the light and its backdrops in a variety of ways. She recreates the place and impression of that shifting light with a point-and-shoot camera, pinhole cameras, sketches and canvas. She manipulates pigment and binders in a variety of materials and media.
