i’m jealous of luke chueh


Sticking with my mask theme from last week, I thought I’d show these paintings by Luke Chueh, an amazing artist from LA. I went with the tamest ones of the bunch. His ‘cute’ characters are generally in some pretty gruesome situations. If a slightly dismembered bunny, or panda missing it’s eyes doesn’t bother you then you’ll love the dark humor of Luke’s work. I think the description on his site explains it perfectly… ‘cute with brute, walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy’. Exactly!

{Luke’s work is currently showing in ‘True Self’, a group show curated by Gary Baseman at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC ~ October 24 – November 21 2009}
