Laura Hamje has a way of capturing PNW landscapes that causes a lump to form in my throat. Her smeared, windshield wipered scenes are drenched in grey, with views of hulking steel ribs of so many bridges over water. Hamje’s latest offering comprises a suite of intimate oil pastel drawings on paper, titled Mirage, that record the last rays of florid setting sun shed across skies on long walks home.
