After his successful exhibition at Roq la Rue gallery in Seattle last year, Victor Castillo opens another show next month at Merry Karnowsky Gallery.  The title of the show “Gameland” refers to the landscapes in this body of work, to “lost paradise or the Promised Land having become a sinister playground.”  As always, there are ominious and political overtones to Castillo’s work, often painting children in “dark scenes where toys become weapons and cruelty replaces innocence.”

We are looking forward to the Chilean (now based in Spain) artist’s first show in Los Angeles and strongly suggest you check out his work at the opening on July 11th.
