Phillip Levine

Seated Figure

graphite 24x18

Sculptor Phillip Levine's work can be viewed all over the Northwest. In Western Washington alone, he has 30 sculptures that stand in public places, including Dancer with Flat Hat at the University of Washington and Walking with Logs on the hill facing the West Seattle Freeway. Beginning work in the 1960s, when the trend in art was abstraction, Levine concentrated on representational figures that have withstood the test of time. This biography of Phillip Levine is reprinted from Deloris Tarzan Ament's Iridescent Light: The Emergence of Northwest Art (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2002).
