About the event

"Shed Skin" beckons you to explore the labyrinth of Shemroske's work, where figures, cities, animals, and text converge to create a deeply layered tapestry of abstract expression.

Viewing a piece by Shemroske can often feel like opening up a private journal filled with the artist’s rambling inner monologues. Each layer, each stroke of the brush, and each penned word contributes to a complex narrative that only reveals itself fully upon closer inspection. What initially appears as abstraction sharpens into a poignant story, offering glimpses into the artist’s mind.

In conversations with Luke, it becomes clear that the artist and the art are extensions of one another. This symbiotic relationship imbues his work with a profound authenticity. Themes of self-love and loathing, the mystery of mortality, and the “gruesome” yet beautiful power of nature are woven throughout his creations. These themes, though deeply personal to Luke, resonate on a universal level, inviting viewers to reflect on their own experiences and emotions.

"Shed Skin" is more than an exhibition; it's a canvas-bound confessional that encourages you to lose yourself in the work of a young artist whose talent and introspection shine through every piece. Join us at our opening reception on June 21st to unveil this striking collection and delve into the mind of Luke Shemroske. 

If you can't make the opening, be sure to visit our gallery where the exhibition will be on view until July 12th.
