After living and going to school in Chicago for a few years, Luke Pelletier went back to his rural-tourist-driven-hometown, Brevard, North Carolina, for a few months to make the work for his first solo in over three years. Living in a tourist town for much of his life, he has been heavily influenced by seasonal economies, as well as the multi-level relationships, dependence and resentment, between tourists and locals.

This Saturday, September 27th, 2014 New Image Art in West Hollywood, CA will be presenting a "Chaos Pays," the first North American solo exhibition of Horfee. "There is a dance that takes place in the shadow of an instant, all creatures of all different periods decide to meet" Horfee says. "The ghost of practicing illegal acts is alive in strong lines. The political act against today’s corporate conundrum, a rude way for selfish teenagers to be ignorant, a personal representation of self through the subjective medium of art. Chaos Pays.”

Yes, that picture is amazing right there of Xara Thustra and Jeffrey Deitch, doing a hangout session outside of Thustra's THX exhibition at New Image Art Gallery in LA last Saturday night. Maybe it wasn't just a show. It was more of an event, with live music, projections, and a little slice of some San Francisco thrown in the mix. Through a mix of graffiti, Mission School aesthetics, activism, and plain old art invasion of a gallery, we recommend checking out THX.
