Openings: Tran Nguyen – “A Place Procured From Our Yesteryears” & Jason Wheatley – “Osmosis” @ Roq la Rue

Opening earlier this month, Tran Nguyen’s A Place Procured From Our Yesteryears depicts larger than life women amongst Parisian architecture. The muted tones set the mood while emotion spills from their eyes, suggesting they don’t feel as large as they appear. The diverse use of color in Jason Wheatley’s new works titled Osmosis, leap off the canvas, despite the mostly still-life subject matter.

Roq la Rue recently employed the help of many amazing artists to fill the walls for their Otherworld group show.

Openings: Travis Louie – “Monsters On Their Day Off” @ Roq La Rue

Travis Louie’s (interviewed) newest solo exhibition titled Monsters On Their Day Off opened April 9th at the Roq la Rue Gallery. Referencing century old photographs, Louie brings his impossibly rendered style to the Seattle gallery, depicting monsters in their down time, when they’re not playing monster.  The acrylics are so exquisitely rendered that the images appear soft and delicate, just as a photograph might appear had it been taken in the late 19th century. Patrons were leaning in close all night to decipher just how Travis can […]
