I’m very pleased to formally announce my next solo exhibition, Inertia, showing at LxWxH! Featuring a new series of large-scale embroidered collage and installation. Show opens Friday July 12 from 6-9pm.
A piece I did in 2011 that was meant to be the start of a series. I made a handful of these little building collages afterward but had trouble finding more nicely-aged paper for backing. Eventually I moved on to the next thing and this one was forgotten. Still a pretty decent little piece…

Multi-disciplinary Seattle artist Shaun Kardinal continues his work with hand-embroidered vintage paper ephemera. Destination postcards, forgotten magazines and promotional lithographs are neatly sliced, precisely punctured and carefully juxtaposed in this ongoing exercise in aesthetic.
