Preview: Peter Ferguson’s “Black Jubilee” at Roq La Rue
For his upcoming solo show at Roq La Rue in Seattle, Peter Ferguson created a series of warmly-hued paintings that harken back to the times of seafaring and colonialism. Richly textured and saturated with autumn colors, the artworks for “Black Jubilee” are at times humorous and at times sinister and supernatural. Mixing elements of history painting and science fiction, Ferguson renders distinctly stylized figures that appear to be haunted by an otherworldly, nautical presence.
