Last night, Roq La Rue played host to the much anticipated reveal of Chris Beren’s newest body of painstakingly crafted and enormously enthralling work, Leeuwenhart (previewed). Working off the theme of his recently born daughter, Emma Lionheart Berens, Seattle art-goers were privy to an all encompassing assault on the senses. With 32 pieces filling the walls of the gallery, the vast majority selling in advance of the opening, Chris has proven his mad scientist-like genius in the studio, imminently dedicated to sharing his visions and stories with us all. For that we thank him, as we are all better off having been able to peek into his uniquely inspiring world, if only for a fleeting moment.

Many more images of the opening after the jump.
