Travis Louie News
The New Yorker has a great article about director Guillermo Del Toro, who also happens to be a collector of darker Pop Surrealist imagery. In this photo there are two large Travis Louie paintings on the wall that he picked up at Roq la Rue! Del Toro also graciously provided a quote for Travis' gorgeous book "Curiosities". Travis has a new show coming up this April at Roq La Rue alongside Kris Kuksi!

Up Next! Mandy Greer "Honey and Lightning"
We are very excited to be mixing things up at the gallery for our first show of 2011. We will be opening a new show with artist Mandy Greer, known for her outrageously intricate and fantastical fabric based installations. Mandy will be turning the gallery into an opulent wonderland, glittering with dark, dreamlike imagery. In addition to several large installation pieces she will be showcasing smaller works including a series of headdresses and a new photography series featuring her work. Join us on January 14th for the opening!
