Currently on view at Haven Gallery in Northport, New York is artist Travis Louie’s fantastic solo exhibition, “Animals That I’ve Known.”

The Gallery explains, “From the scaly to the furry, each sitter is pictured in the finest attire and millinery styles of the Victorian era. Posed and executed in a soft application of medium, emulating tintypes or cabinet cards, each portrait is representative of that individual’s profession and ambition; attributes that define their individuality yet immerse them purposefully in a bustling society. Humor is laced with weighty undertones as Louie offers us notions of the other in curiously engaging poses and anthropomorphic depictions of unhuman species, both beckoning us to learn more while simultaneously finding familiarity and friendship. Inspiration for these visuals go beyond Victorian aesthetics and tap into Louie’s love of film noir, atomic age sci-fi stories and the quirks and particularities of people he has encountered throughout his life.”

The exhibition will be on view until June 16th, 2019 and should definitely be sought out if in the area.
