In addition to twelve hand-painted rotocast resin Bear heads for this weekend’s ‘Heads’ (5.10) show at Clutter Gallery, Luke Chueh is also bringing a special treat for collectors –- Decapitated Bear Heads, painted in bright pink as a nod to Clutter’s signature color. If you’re in the area, going to the opening is now a complete no brainer.
