EVENT DETAILS
Thumbnail for - Lli Wilburn: 84, 30, 4, 14 Hidden behind a fine group show, Wilburn’s postcard-sized paintings and prints showcase her meticulously detailed depictions of desolate urbanscapes but with a new focus: the four highways running along the lower Columbia River. Focusing on what she calls the “landscape of waiting,” Wilburn uses layer upon layer of dye, ink, and the most minute scratchwork to immortalize the on ramps, ferry docks, and other sites where travelers might find themselves stalled or delayed indefinitely—just as this work stalled me in my tracks. “West 5th and Washington (Pink Vancouver)” is a Highway 14 onramp in a barren industrial stretch of downtown Vancouver, where I-5’s towers rise in the background. Wilburn bathes the site in a luminescent pink corral tone—a pollution-tainted beauty—that perfectly captures the essence of a route I took many times as a teen, trying to escape the then foreboding stagnancy of downtown Vancouver for the dynamic lure of Portland.
