“Reverie and the Invisible Hegemony” Currently on view at @roqlarue. I completed this a couple of months ago as a long term installation. Ive been slacking on my IG posts only because Im trying to focus more on my fine art these days. Thank you again, @kirsten_h_anderson for the amazing opportunity! . . . #weirdocult #jefferytjacobson #postinternet #murals #muralart #allspraypaint #hyperrealism #realismpainting #newrenaissance #futuristic #newcontemporary #newcontemporaryart #roqlarue

Jeffery Jacobson \ Reverie and the Invisible Hegemony (detail) This is just a glimpse into a larger wall mural currently on view at Roq La Rue gallery on Capitol Hill. Jacobson's sharply detailed chromatic style plays with the way our postinternet eye perceives photorealism versus the digital image, catapulting us into a synthetically hyperreal dreamlike world. The simulation becomes more real than reality. Somewhere in the ether, Baudrillard weeps. #jefferytjacobson #postinternet #murals #muralart #hyperrealism #spraypaint #newcontemporary #newcontemporaryart #roqlarue #roqlaruegallery

Ace of Spades, Queen of Diamonds kind of day. #ace #queen #friday | Repost from @hifructosemag Twenty-one years ago, Roq La Rue Gallery opened its doors in Seattle, and the new group show at the space, “Ace Of Spades, Queen Of Diamonds” offers a window into that history. The line-up is considerable, among them Chris Berens (shown), Lola Gil, Camille Rose Garcia, Electric Coffin, and several others. Owner Kristen Anderson says it’s “by no means comprehensive, given how many artists we’ve exhibited over the years, but it still represents a nice little microcosm. I think what I like best is seeing how the artist have evolved and grown themselves!” See more work from the show on HiFructose.com. #ChrisBerens #RoqLaRue #PopSurrealism #HiFructose @chris.berens @roqlarue

I’ve spent the last week in Seattle and it was an amazing trip. Not only did I get the chance to drop in @roqlarue to see my work alongside some of my favorite fellow smiths, I had several free days to sit quietly at a harborside pub on Bainbridge Island sketching new pieces for Fall. All orders are shipped, including this twin snake ring with flashing blue labradorite 🦋♥️ What are your Summer plans? #roqlarue #gallerylife #summerlovin #snakejewelry #snakemedicine #botanicaljewelry #sneks

Custom cicadas headed to Roq la Rue, all sold. I take orders for cicadas! They have a wait time, but are worth it. This necklace is the biggest I've made. Huge pieces are a real challenge, same as the tiny ones. Soldering huge bezels onto bigger backplates is not for the faint of heart. I don't use glue, so these seams have to be perfect. I'm really happy with how these turned out. 4 labradorite and one aquamarine. #flannerygrace #roqlarue #cicada #cicadajewelry #artjewelry #oneofakind #riojeweler #fabricated #motherofcicadas #rockhound #witchywoman

It used to be a place to go and throw in a fishing line, a place to go camp with your best lover, a place of simple beauty and quietude. Then in June of 2019 a strange energy started to take residence there. People would visit briefly but not trespass too long as it caused an uncomfortable ringing in your ears. After a week of this, the lake began to bubble, and there emerged from the churning waters a fresh and glowing thing with sharp edges.⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ Symbolic of rejuvenation and rebirth.⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ Birthplace⠀⠀ 3ft x 4ft⠀⠀ Acrylic on canvas⠀⠀ $3000⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ Currently on view @roqlarue gallery until May 26 : )⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #crystal #rainbow #double -rainbow #sciencefiction #floating #reflections #glow #glowing #rebeccachaperon #roqlaruegallery #roqlarue #seattle #vancouver #darkwater #storytelling #storyof_art #newart #canadianart #birthplace #instaartist #instaart #cbcarts #ufo #alien #phenomenon #event #mystery

SOLD⁣⠀🔴⁣⠀ "Beacon"⁣⠀⁣⠀ 22 x 28" Acrylic on canvas - on view @roqlarue gallery in Seattle until May 5 2019.⁣⠀⁣⠀ .⁣⠀⁣⠀ Here's a little thing I wrote about this piece: ⁣⠀ "Beacon" ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ You are bone-weary and salt-encrusted. Your crew all lie in an enchanted sleep. For days they worked as the ocean became a writhing and hungry thing, threatening to capsize your vessel and swallow you whole. You notice a tiny glowing dot in the distance, beckoning you nearer and though you bite your tongue and pinch the soft inside of your arm, you can not decipher whether this is a salt-sleepy dream or benign alien intervention. Waves of warmth wash over you. ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀⁣⠀ To me this piece is symbolic of peace at the end of a struggle⁣⠀ .⁣⠀⁣⠀ To see available work in the show reach out to Kirsten @roqlarue 🎈🖼🎀⁣⠀ . . . #beautifulbizarre #crystals #crystal #beacon #ocean #blackwater #glow #glowing #artistsoninstagram #instaartist #seattleart #roqlarue #roqlaruegallery #ohwowyes #art_we_inspire #huffpostarts #crystalmagic #hyperallergic #crystalline #rebeccachaperon #arrestedmotion #artforbreakfast #painting #cbcarts #acrylicpainting #exhibition #contemporaryart

I just came across this super old photo of me (circa 2000?) standing in front of some of my first paintings before they went out to Seattle for my very first solo show at Roq La Rue Gallery in 2005! Jeez how time flies! Thank you to Kirsten Anderson for giving me my very first solo show! She was one of the first people to discover me along with Jamie O’Shea from Juxtapoz Magazine. I will be forever grateful to Kirsten, Jamie and Juxtapoz for discovering me! @kirsten_h_anderson #roqlarue @hifructosemag @juxtapozmag @jamieoshea #juxtapozmag #hifructose #LoriEarley #LoriEarleyArt #Art #FineArt #ContemporaryArt #contemporarysurrealism #popsurrealism #ContemporaryPainting #Gothic #GothicArt #Artist

Hi friends! I am feeling so proud of the show we have put together: the exhibition opens tomorrow/Thurs April 11th in Seattle @roqlarue Gallery : ) ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ You will also be able to see the magnificent sculptures by Debra Baxter @debrabaxterstudio ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ If you would like to view the price-list and available work in the show please contact kirsten(at)roqlarue(dot)com . ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ This painting is called Lilith⁣⠀ It is 3 x 4 ft Acrylic on Canvas. ⁣⠀ Here's a little story i wrote for this painting: . They called her Lilith the day she slid into our world, her energy so femme and free...she was the first crystalline entity to make herself visible to the naked eye. They say that you can only view Lilith by cave light. Otherwise she is a faint shimmer in the open light of day, and a portal of blank space at night . . Thanks for the support from my patrons and the press features from @booooooom @thejealouscurator @hifructosemag @juxtapozmag : ) ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ #debrabaxter #roqlarue #lilith #crystal #transparent #translucent #seattleart #artexhibition #incandescence #ghostheart #rebeccachaperon #cave #dreamscape #floating #crystalmagic #magic #shimmer #beautifulbizarre #juxtapose #hifructose #onbooooooom #booooooom #thejealouscurator #calltobecreative #instaart #artistsoninstagram

"THIRSTY" by @lolagil Oil & Acrylic on panel 16" x 12" Lola Gil's solo exhibit at @roqlarue #Seattle runs until April 7th. In it, she explores such concepts as drought and climate change, by employing some really mesmerizing techniques that play with dimension, depth, texture, space, focus, and perspective. This particular piece with it's intricate knit sweater, lace, and water splashing from it's transparent glass is a great example of the collage-like effect in some of the work achieved by blending a more painterly abstract surrealist approach with hyper-realism to the emotional benefit of the overall composition.
