He often paints blushing red cheeks on his sensuous figures, giving the impression that blood has just rushed to the surface of the skin. His people squat, curl into the fetal position, lie in repose, ride piggyback, stand with arms crossed over their chests and spell out the words “love” and “lust” with their bodies. Though more cartoonish than realistic, the figures nonetheless radiate humanness, inspiring a tactile sort of empathy when an arm clasps a knee, a hand grips a shoulder.</p> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-sponsored"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-img-cred-link"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Image Credit (linkable):&nbsp;</div> Richard Nicol </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-article-reference"> <div class="field-label">Article Reference:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/article/elegant-porcelain-pottery-and-dishware-north-seattle-artist">Elegant Porcelain Pottery and Dishware from North Seattle Artist</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/gallery/northwest-artists-shine-siff">Northwest Artists Shine at SIFF</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/article/roger-shimomura-greg-kucera-gallery">Roger Shimomura at Greg Kucera Gallery</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.seattlemag.com/article/akio-takamoris-beginning-everything" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Visual Arts Arts & Entertainment Wed, 27 May 2015 18:48:45 +0000 alene.bouranova 45009 at http://www.seattlemag.com Uber Could Soon Pick Up at Sea-Tac, Light Rail Station Photos http://www.seattlemag.com/article/uber-could-soon-pick-sea-tac-light-rail-station-photos <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/profiles/lauren-mang-0">Lauren Mang</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-deck"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The top Seattle news stories you should be reading today </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://www.seattlemag.com/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://www.seattlemag.com/sites/seattlemag.advantagelabs.com/files/article/arts-culture/capitolhilllightrail.jpg" type="image/jpeg; length=71358">capitolhilllightrail.jpg</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-caption"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Much progress has been made on the Capitol Hill light rail station </div> </div> </div> <!--paging_filter--><p><strong>So long, Silicon Valley: </strong>According to Seattle-based Redfin, "For the first time ever, the median price for a Silicon Valley home just exceeded one million dollars," which means that people are leaving the area simply because they can't afford to stay.
