Sneak Peek: Jonathan Viner 'Strange Math' @ Roq La Rue
Roq La Rue unveils a new collection of work from Brooklyn based painter Jonathan Viner this Thursday entitled “Strange Math”. His work is a blend of dreamy figuratives and evocative narratives, rendered in creamy palettes punctuated by neon bright colors. Born in 1976, Viner mines the faded, analogue era of his early youth for resonant aesthetic cues. Guided by the design and ambience of this period, he utilizes a combination of live models, props, and photographs as starting points for his oil paintings. Gradually and non-linearly, Viner’s precisely articulated environs and populace coalesce to form an enigmatic constellation of narrative works.
Strange Math opens February 4th at Roq La Rue, 532 1st Avenue S., Seattle, WA 98104, www.roqlarue.com
