Our idol Marita Dingus does it again: Bending Life, her current solo show at Francine Seders Gallery in Seattle, is a testament to how ordinary materials become extraordinary when the artist is fearless and fierce. This particular installation feels more joyful than past shows, with lots of color and sparkle and sweetness dancing on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. Ruby Re-Usable was particularly delighted to see how those pink spirally thingies that she had passed on to Marita were incorporated into eye-catching wall hangings. We also marveled at the materials Marita reuses — everyone does something with corks, but she also utilizes the wire champagne cork protectors, as well as the metal remains of burnt-out light bulbs, fabric scraps, and aluminum pop top tabs, along with glass, which is a media that is seldom seen mixed with such exuberance.
