Don Tiller work coming to Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery
September 21, 2010 · Updated 5:24 PM
The Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery will exhibit new works by Northwest Painter Don Tiller titled "Over Hill, Over Dale."
Residing on the Olympic Peninsula, Tiller is intrigued with the imprint left on the landscape when touched by mankind. With bold colors and simple shapes, he has given this new group of paintings his interpretation of man’s attempt to initiate order in nature. Natural chaos provides interest balanced with geometric repetition.
This recent body of work is primarily composed of interesting shapes and bold colors as one travels the rolling hills of a rural landscape. The paintings are snippets of warped remembrances allowing viewers a glimpse of the things he has seen and the places he has been.
When someone quips “I think I’ve been there” or “I know where that is” he knows the connection between creator and viewer has been made.
The exhibit will be from Oct. 13 to Nov. 7 with an exhibit preview from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 13.
The gallery is located at 800 Bellevue Way N.E. Suite 111.
