"Neo-Grotesque" Opens This Friday

Christian Rex Van Minnen | Keyhole 4.1 | 36"x29" | $2500


Christian Rex van Minnen has created a wonderfully disturbing and eerily beautiful collection of work for his solo exhibition at Roq La Rue in Seattle.  The exhibit is entitled NEO-GROTESQUE and showcases over a dozen impressive works featuring biological monstrosities painted in portrait form with a Renaissance formality.

Similarities to Giuseppe Arcimboldo and even H.R. Giger are evident, however van Minnen has his own decisive approach.  With this exhibit, van Minnen continues to explore his Keyhole series.  In this series, the works consist of two stacked panels with a silhouette cutout on the upper panel and the painted elements on the bottom.  Depending on what vantage point the viewer observes the work, different elements from the bottom panel are revealed through the cutout allowing the work to appear as if it is transforming in front of you.  The offering also includes a continuation of his popular Manfungus series and even still life compositions like the striking one below.
