Opening at Copro Gallery : May 8th, 2010
This weekend, in Los Angles at the Copro Gallery in Bergamot Station opens two solo exhibitions.
Luke Chueh's "Beginnings / Endings (And Other Worthless Epiphanies)"- an artist we havent seen about for some time. I can imagin this show is highly atticipated. Chueh's bears all the stylistic stamps his fans have come to love. Employing minimal color schemes, simple animal characters, and a seemingly endless suite of ill-fated situations, Chueh balances cute with brute, perched on the fine line between comic and tragic.
Mari Inukai works in oil on canvas, and graphite and charcoal on paper to create a world straddling childhood and adulthood, sexuality and decadence, “between the choices I’ve made and where life has put me,” states the artist.
She draws a contrast between sweet and bitter, soft and hard, the yummiest chocolate and the deadliest poison. "Riding that line – that edge between the two – between the yin and the yang," states Inukai.

May 8 – May 29, 2010
