February 17 Events
January 11 - February 18, Winston Wachter
Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle is proud to announce Calhau, an exhibition of new works by Julie Speidel. Please join us for our opening reception on Wednesday, January 11th, 6 – 8 pm. The artist will be in attendance.
At a very young age, Julie Speidel became aware of the connection stone provides to the past and our ancient history. Her years as a child in Europe taught her the spiritual and symbolic importance stone has held throughout time, and its ability to record all aspects of our lives. Today, Speidel uses carefully selected pieces of marble to record her story.
In recent years Speidel has looked for a new manner of expression with a similar permanence. Thirty years ago she discovered Japanese Torinoko paper, considered the most permanent paper in the world. For years she has been intimidated by the strength of the paper and the challenge of a new medium. While stone holds strength and weight, paper is light and delicate, yet unforgiving. After carefully planning her compositions, Speidel has translated her totemic bronze and marble sculptures onto paper effortlessly.
Julie Speidel’s sculptures are included in many prestigious private and public collections in the U.S. and abroad, including the Tacoma Art Museum, Amazon Art Collection, three United States Embassies, the Oracle Collection, the Boeing Collection and the Nordstrom Collection.
