Stacey Rozich just opened a new body of work, "Shrine," at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle last weekend, and as we catch up on the post-Basel madness, this was one show that stood out. In the new body of work, Rozich describes the the trappings and rituals of death, painting figures standing or laying near ornamental mausoleums and gravestones. They are joined by a cast of skeletal or animal demon spirits that comfort them, antagonize them, or stand guard as they begin their journey through death. Though they might be protective, they are also tricksters – dancing, drinking, and reveling in their non-corporeal existence in spite of ours.

Nothing says summer vacation like the French Riviera. But in the case of David Choe and Estevan Oriol, they much prefer to spend the summer in one of the hardest places in the world to get into: Afghanistan. For the August 2013 issue, we get an exclusive, Anderson Cooper 360 style report from Afghanistan from the journals of David Choe and photos of Estevan Oriol. We follow their trek through the mountains, palaces, jails, and neighborhoods that most of the world has yet to see in over a decade. And they brought paint.

Kicking off the exhibition program at Roq La Rue's new Seattle space in Pioneer Square will be Stacey Rozich's Within Without Me. We have been showing Rozich's work on the site for a few years, but this show is noted for "a jump up from previous shows containing larger, more complex works rendered in her trademark mediums of watercolor and gouache, as well as a deeper, more profound exploration of contemporary global social political themes."

The mysterious creatures and dark folk narratives of Stacey Rozich's illustrations pack a visceral punch, depicting an unfamiliar yet captivating mythology unique to Rozich's imagination, her clean lines and bold colors skillfully imbuing each illustration with its own self-contained story in the context of a larger mythos.

You have to love a band like Fleet Foxes, who release a critically acclaimed debut only to be just as solid on their sophomore effort. FF frontman Robin Pecknold's brother, Sean, just created this fantastic animation video for the epic track "The Shine/An Argument" off Fleet Foxes 2011 LP, Helplessness Blues. Great work. Stacey Rozich, whom we have profiled in the magazine before, did the character illustrations.
