BERLIN///FIRST LOOK: TRAVIS LOUIE’S “INHUMAN ODDITIES” AT MERRY KARNOWSKY GALLERY
Last year venerable LA underground art institution MERRY KARNOWSKY GALLERY took a huge leap in establishing a satellite oputpost in the land of Bauhaus, and since then she’s been supplying “Zee Germans” with a steady supply of Pop Surrealism whether they like it or nicht. Last weekend saw the opening of new work by one of our favorite artists, namely TRAVIS LOUIE whose “Inhuman Oddities” exhibition of hyper-realistic sepia toned paintings reasserts his rightful claim as the master of Victorian Oddball Portraiture. So fine are Louie’s renderings in fact—right down to the painting surfaces—that in person they resemble real period photographs. Best of all, they’re still crazily affordable. HAVE A LOOK:
