PROJECT: Station Platform Walls
ARTIST: Louie Gong (Seattle, WA)
DESCRIPTION: Gong is creating an environment for the station platform, with tile patterns for its walls overlaid by two long sinuous, cut-metal creatures. Inspired by the Northwest native and Chinese artwork of his ancestry, Gong's creatures suggest dragons. Up close, patrons will see that the dragons' bodies are filled with shapes and images drawn from plants and animals, native history, and the contemporary urban landscape.
