Jon MacNair, Chris Pell & Ryan T. Riss Get Gnarly At Flatcolor

It’s been a minute since we’ve written about shows at Flatcolor Gallery, but that doesnt mean they’ve been slacking on fine arts curation. In fact, they’re doing a great job. This month, they take their show to group show territory and prominently feature one artist we here at REDEFINE know so well — Stacey Rozich. In addition to Rozich, though, a lot of the artists focused on black and whites. There’s too much color on this blog. Here are my favorites from the raw and grimey — and often death-themed — works on display now through November 28th at Flatcolor.

Vee Hua 華婷婷 (they/she) is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer with semi-nomadic tendencies. Much of their work unifies their metaphysical interests with their belief that art can positively transform the self and society. They are the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE, Interim Managing Editor of South Seattle Emerald, and Co-Chair of the Seattle Arts Commission. They also previously served as the Executive Director of the interdisciplinary community hub, Northwest Film Forum, where they played a key role in making the space more welcoming and accessible for diverse audiences.

In 2017, Vee released the narrative short film, Searching Skies — which touches on Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States — and co-organized The Seventh Art Stand, a national film and civil rights discussion series against Islamophobia. 2022 sees the release of their next short film, Reckless Spirits, which is a metaphysical, multi-lingual POC buddy comedy for a bleak new era, in anticipation of a feature film.

Vee is passionate about cultural space, the environment, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures. They also regularly share observational human stories through their storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE!, and are pursuing a Master’s in Tribal Resource and Environmental Stewardship under the Native American Studies Department at the University of Minnesota.
