Nichole DeMent Restoration Collaboration

Restoration Collaboration, 2009

In collaboration with Stephen Rock

In her MadArt collaboration with Stephen Rock at McGilvra’s Restaurant, their work is an extension of many room installations they’ve created at their Pioneer Square studio, Rock|DeMent visual art space. Colorful images of reflections on water were printed on transparent media and wrap the windows of McGilvra’s Restaurant. The colored light that shines through the clear film transcends the practice of looking at photographs, while Stephen’s vessel sculpture becomes an unexpected exploration of something at once familiar and bizarre.
