|Travis Louie, Curse of the Goat, 2006
Louie's monsters are gentlemen.
In his piece Curse of the Goat, the subject of Louie's painting is refined. His coat and tie look immaculate, his beard and hair are carefully groomed, and he carries the look of a slightly odd, but pefectly nice, philosophy professor. The sepia tones of the painting add respectability--it looks like an old photograph, not the painting of a horrible monster.
