Openings: Peter Ferguson – “Fire In The Map Room!” @ Roq la Rue

Last Friday, opening alongside CRG (covered) at Roq La Rue in Seattle was Peter Ferguson’s Fire In The Map Room! Dimly lit interiors and the moments right before dusk are exquisitely detailed in a muted color palette, with a style honed from his many years illustrating children’s books. The imaginative beasts inhabit Peter’s worlds nonchalantly, and while the human characters seemed intrigued at times, others seem bored or annoyed, like it’s an everyday occurrence. With backgrounds just as detailed as the main subject, one could spend […]

Openings: Camille Rose Garcia – “La Danse Macabre” @ Roq la Rue

On April 3rd, Camille Rose Garcia (interviewed) opened her latest solo show at Roq la Rue, titled La Danse Macabre, which translates to Dance of Death, a theme originated in the late middle ages to remind us that no one escapes the hand of death. Camille’s trademark style is on display as Death serenades its future victims  Ghost moths and severed hands adorned with black glitter abound as the ghastly images contrast with the neon induced paint. Surroundings of flowers and mushrooms explode with color over […]

Upcoming: Camille Rose Garcia – “La Danse Macabre” @ Roq La Rue

After working on a series of charity print releases, group shows, and projects with Roq La Rue, Camille Rose Garcia (interviewed) will be opening up a solo show at the Seattle showspace next month. Entitled La Danse Macabre, the new pieces, if going according to name for the fresh body of work, will thematically deal with the “Dance of Death,” an artistic genre in the Middle Ages that focused on the universality of dying, no matter one’s station in life. A fitting subject for the gothic imagery often […]

Openings: “Infusion” @ Roq La Rue

Infusion at Roq la Rue opened on Thursday, March 6th to a packed audience. The show’s goal was to infuse the gallery with talent that had not been seen in the gallery previously.  Almost all of the artists in the show are new to the gallery and they didn’t take the opportunity lightly. From the life size Wedding Party by Rose Freymuth-Frazier, the grotesquely beautiful Blue Room by Jeff Jacobson (seen above), and Zachari Logan’s Blue Man 2, amazing levels of detail were brought, all with […]

Openings: John Brophy – “Breaking The Spell” & Femke Hiemstra – “The Timid Cabbage” Book Release @ Roq La Rue

While most were focused on the art bonanza in Miami, Roq La Rue favorites John Brophy and Femke Hiemstra, shared an open with new works at the Seattle gallery. John Brophy continues to hone his craft, mixing science symbology with religious iconography in Breaking The Spell. Added to the mix this time around are a few individual themes, like the world’s water supply in Oasis, and the companies that produce supergerms, which are literally slapped across a mesmerizing face in Birth of the Gram-Negative Venus.

Openings: Marco Mazzoni – “Naturama” & Lindsey Carr – “La Petite Singerie” @ Roq La Rue Gallery

There is an old saying that the window to your soul is through the eyes. Marco Mazonni has capatilized on this, by excluding them from his brilliant color pencil drawings. The exclusion mystifies and intrigues, while the surrounding plants, flowers, and familiar animals try to ease our reactions.  Naturama features three larger works and a bounty of smaller pieces on moleskin paper, giving us a detailed look into Mazzoni’s animal kingdom. Several of the smaller pieces feature a monotone palette, with a ball-point pen replacing the usual colored pencils. Mimicking portraits […]

Openings: Mary Iverson – “Sunk” @ Davidson Galleries

AM recently visited Mary Iverson in her studio leading up to the open of her Sunk exhibition. With the work complete, it was time to take it to the masses at Davidson Galleries in Seattle. The large landscapes filled the space with nature, but the veil of over-population and consumerism permeated the scenes as etched lines and shipping containers. There are also some smaller mixed media pieces which tackled the climate change topic and the inevitable rise of the worlds oceans. To cap it off, […]
