The Kaleidoscopic World of Erika Mugglin
Erika Mugglin is a Los Angeles based artist who utilizes photography to capture a parallel universe not unlike what it would be like to live inside a rainbow. She uses her lens as a platform to create kaleidoscopic vistas of surreality, where people are seen less for their visages than for their colors. These images exude a sense of joyful yet complex curiosity about the world as reflected through her subjects.June 02, 2016
Mail from Léonard Combier!
We were excited to open our mail the other day to find a submission by French artist Léonard Combier. His paintings and illustrations are mazes of color and line. Their compositions are salient when viewed from afar, but the details of his work require intense and careful examination, revealing whole worlds in the folds of their squiggles.March 25, 2016

Jonathan Viner "Strange Math" @ Roq La Rue Gallery
On Feburary 4th, Roq La Rue will present Brooklyn based painter Jonathan Viner’s solo show, “Strange Math”. His work is a blend of dreamy figuratives and evocative narratives, rendered in creamy palettes punctuated by neon bright colors. Born in 1976, Viner mines the faded, analogue era of his early youth for resonant aesthetic cues. Guided by the design and ambience of this period, he utilizes a combination of live models, props, and photographs as starting points for his oil paintings. Gradually and non-linearly, Viner’s precisely articulated environs and populace coalesce to form an enigmatic constellation of narrative works.February 02, 2016
