Roq La Rue Gallery's "Lush Life 2" group show opens in Seattle this Friday and it's a tour-de-force of Pop Surrealism and contemporary painting and sculpture. The show includes new work by: Joe Sorren, Chris Berens, Marion Peck, Kris Kuksi, Travis Louie, Brian Despain, John Brophy, Martin Wittfooth, Ryan Heshka, Michael Brown, Charlie Immer, Mandy Greer, Gail Potocki, Laurie Hogin, Boomer, Madeline Von Foerster, Ryan Heshka, and Andrew Arconti. Above is Berens's "Stage One" (mixed media: ink, paint, photopaper on panel, 40" x 40"). The thread running through the show, according to curator Kirsten Anderson, is "an opulence or richness, either in subject matter or technique." Lush Life 2 runs until May 7 and all of the art is also viewable online.
