Travis Louie was born in Queens, NY about a mile from the site of the 1964 World's Fair, so his fascination with "Atomic Age" science-fiction and horror shouldn't be surprising. Or, at least, no more surprising than his fantastical world where human oddities, mythical creatures and otherworldly beasts seem to have existed in the Victorian and Edwardian periods. Delicately capturing their forms in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional mediums, Louie draws every onlooker into his alternate history populated with things best left in the closest. And now, Stranger Factory proudly invites you to step into his world.
Travis Louie's Spirits exhibition opens at the Albuquerque, NM boutique on August 3rd, showcasing the early American spiritualism movement warped by Louie's bizarre third eye. Expect to find yourself confronted by images of cycloptic gentlemen and ectoplasmic hauntings, sometimes simultaneously.
Louie will be present at the gallery opening night for the reception from 6PM to 9PM as well as for a rendering workshop that will be held in conjunction with the event. And while we join the artist on a journey into the abnormal and supernatural, we understand that an old friend â Uncle Six Eyes â may be making an appearanceâ¦
