ROGER PURDUE

An Introduction, A Retrospection

        

                         

Opening Reception,

First Thursday, Feb 5, 6-8pm

 

It is rare in this age to discover an untouched body of work by a skilled artist who worked in relative isolation, and without bowing to the dictates of the art market. Yet, Roger Purdue was just one of these cases. Purdue created stunning serigraphs for his community’s enjoyment, and his work has never been seen outside of Whidbey Island and Orcas Island, WA.

Purdue passed away in January 2014 from Parkinson's Disease. He left behind a portfolio of meticulously pulled prints in dazzling colors. Purdue’s gradation of colors and clean lines are so precise that they almost appear digitally designed, or ink-jet printed, but each was hand-pulled.

The artist was inspired by his great grandmother--a Tsimshian tribal member--as well as many summers spent sailing the coast of British Columbia and Southeast Alaska.

We are proud to work with Purdue’s estate in showing a wide array of his works to a brand new audience, and to help put his name on the map of Northwest Coast art. Many of these prints are over twenty years old, and in some cases are the final numbers available in their editions.
