Joe Shlichta

I normally don't care for abstract art, but I've known Seattle artist Joe Shlichtafor a long time- and in fact showed him at Roq la Rue when he was painting dark dreamy images of corroding and rusting bridges. So I know he has incredible chops. Lately he's changed tack and is now painting dreamy abstract paintings that have a hint ofDarren Waterston about them (one of the few non figurative painters I adore) and strangely are oddly reminicent of Joe Sorren as well. They are really great- they look better in person than online! He shows at Ballard Fetherston Feb 7th- March 3rd.
