Preview/Interviews: Luke Chueh – “From Light Cometh Darkness” @ Corey Helford Gallery

Luke Chueh’s show “From Light Cometh Darkness” opens this Friday, March 20th at Corey Helford Gallery. Although this body of work encompasses his usual beloved but sad and/or tortured characters, Chueh does appear to be exploring some different techniques and themes. For example, look at the raw energy and loose strokes in his interpretation of Goya’s famous painting (seen above).  We sat down with Luke to talk about about this painting as well as other things in the interview after the jump…
