Who Doesn’t Want a Yeti for Their Family?
Travis Louie just sent me a little sneak peek image from his up and coming exhibition at Roq la Rue opening tomorrow night (Friday April 8th). Makes me wonder why we all don’t have huggable yetis for our homes. Wouldn’t that just fix everything that’s wrong with the world?
What makes me want to hop on a plane to Seattle right now is that Travis is showing simultaneously with Kris Kuksi, so the whole gallery is likely bursting with some heavy talent.
The Family Yeti
Travis Louie will be showing a series of his signature monster infused alt-Victorian daguerreotype-style paintings featuring “people and their pets”, (as well as a few Lovecraftian entities on their best behavior.)
Kris Kuksi will be showing his astonishing “post industrial rococo” mixed media sculptures, and as a special treat will also be exhibiting several hyper intricate drawings.
Both artists will be in attendance and also signing copies of their books, “Curiosities” by Travis Louie and “Divination and Delusion” by Kris Kuksi. Books will be available at the gallery.
This show will run to May 07, 2011.
