ABOUT THE PUSH/PULL COLLECTIVE Formed in 2016, Push/Pull is a collective of Seattle artists working with the formal process of creating photographs. The name refers to traditional film development techniques and to the discourse and exchange of ideas between group members that is the group’s purpose. Activities include monthly meetings to engage in critical dialogue about works-in-progress and planning and realizing ensemble projects and exhibitions. A primary concern is the challenge of producing meaningful photographic artworks as the medium undergoes a radical shift from material to digital production—where the production and distribution of imagery occurs almost simultaneously, and the proliferation of digital image-making risks overwhelming the salience of photographic imagery broadly. Formal questions inherent to artistic production and questions about the ways that printed photographs continue to engage viewers inform the development of individual and group work. Although the artists in push/pull work in a wide variety of methods and subject matter, the collective work tends toward the exploration of landscapes and place, where perceived absence and stillness are charged with a presence that invites lingering.
ARTISTS: Tara Champion, Michael Clements, Andrej Gregov, Elisa Huerta-Enochian, Chris Letcher, Jon MacLaren, Susan MacLaren, Helen Miller, Anna Ream, Jenny Riffle, and Seth Thompson.
