Previews: Sail – “Canna Intrat” @ Roq La Rue

On October 2nd, Seattle will see a new solo from Sail (featured) opening at Roq La Rue entitled Canna Intrat. The Northwest artist will be revisiting the gallery (see 2013) with new ink drawings on paper featuring darkly atmospheric portraits of his characters surrounded by shadows and vegetation. The strikingly detailed works almost seem like photos, with his mysterious subjects posed to “represent the promise of rebirth after death or catastrophe.” More preview images below… Discuss Sail here.

Openings: Laurie Lee Brom, Ransom & Mitchell, and Sail @ Roq la Rue

Not to be outdone after last month’s Baxter Collection show, art was once again packed to the rafters at Roq la Rue for the first show of fall, or as it has been dubbed, Roqtober! In her first solo gallery show, titled Moonlight, Magnolias, and Madness, Laurie Lee Brom brings us her soft touch while strolling through a moonlit bayou. Hints of fantasy abound as insects and animals provide whimsical interactions with their female subjects. Several of Laurie’s family and friends were at the opening, including […]

Studio Visit / Previews: Sail – “Dead Language” @ Roq La Rue

This author had the pleasure of interviewing Sail in 2012 for his personal blog, but a lot has changed for the Seattle based artist since then. Shortly after his personal website launched in late 2012, he caught the eye of Kirsten Anderson, owner and curator of Roq la Rue. He soon found his name on the artist list for the I’ll Love You Until the End of the World group show. His work was well received, and after ThreeA Publishing released his book in their GOYA series, […]

Openings: “I’ll Love You ‘Til The End of the World” @ Roq La Rue

The I’ll Love You ‘Til The End of the World group show opened at Roq La Rue this past Friday to a large crowd which simultaneously got to see some great art and escaped the freezing temperatures outside. The title of the show is based upon a Nick Cave song of the same name, which finds the protagonist just after a bomb blast rocks a hotel as he speeds away, thanking his girl continually in the chorus. While some of the artists rendered the lyrics in […]
