Painter Travis Louie has a new show of his lovely phantasmagorical portraits opening tomorrow (Friday, August 21), at Seattle's Roq La Rue Gallery. Louie will be there signing copies of his new monograph, Curiosities. The entire show is also viewable online. You can also purchase the book (unsigned) on Amazon now for $20. Above left, "The Strangler" (24" x 18"); above right, "Chauncey" (20" x 14"). I would love to have an original Louie someday — it would certainly turn any wall into a wunderkammer.
