Culmination of my need to make bigger and bigger versions of jet fighter models, the large (1/4 scale) MiG-15 was a participant in the 1980 Bumbershoot Festival. Big enough for me to get inside of and steer down the hill. For what I suspect were politcal reasons, it did not win the grand prize even though it was so much better than any of the other cutesy offerings.
Problems in American Democracy, Rosco Louie Gallery.
This was really my second solo exhibition of the year with the Rosco Louie Gallery in Seattle, coming later in 1980. Three large scale paintings: "Problems in American Democracy"; "Tide of History Realized"; and "Sorry". Each painting was composed of a grouping of the stretched, painted, clear vinyl elements placed on a wall covered with photographer's background paper. Additional drawings and paintings on aluminum panels.
