Tomorrow night (June 8th), Roq La Rue will be presenting a group show entitled Death and the Maiden featuring works from Kazuki Takamatsu, Femke Hiemstra, Travis Louie, Glenn Barr, Esao Andrews (seen above), Andrew Hem, Sylvia Ji, Peter Gronquist, Marco Mazzoni, Ciou, Lisa Petrucci, Laurie Lee Brom, Amanda Manitach, Jessica McCourt, Madeline Von Foerster, and Jessica Joslin. Artists were ask to submit pieces based on the medieval theme of a maiden dancing with a skeleton, a metaphor for the fact “no one gets out alive,” and remembering it can make life a little sweeter. Also available will be a print by Femke Hiemstra initially available to gallery walk-in’s the day of the show based on her original for the show Mort En Cadence (seen below). Of note, the Seattle showspace will be celebrating their 14th year anniversary with this show – congrats Kirsten!
