Luke Chueh’s new show is what you hoped for and more. It is consistent with his visual battle between good and evil, which could be better described as cute characters doing very bad things. Luke’s true strength lies in telling a story that makes you keep looking…and wondering. Often you might think ‘that’s so wrong!’ or ‘wow, wtf?’ Or often I bet there is just a ton of laughter if you can share his sick imagination. His work is full of multiple meanings and layers of emotional question. Read the entire story, Talking with Luke Chueh About His Solo "From Light Cometh Darkness" at Corey Helford, and see tons of exhibit photos.
