Because Portland culture seldom separates its queer artist/hipster from its fancifully dandy heteros, you may never know whether the work you’re looking at is from one or other. And it may not matter…But the glossy circles of queer artist and curator (and fellow OLive blogger) TJ Norris certainly resonate the feeling of the industrial spaces of the Pacific Northwest, if not a gay Oregonian caricature. These pieces, titled Nucleo, and described by the artist as both “subliminal and cerebral” would indeed sit well on the walls of any Portland hipster house or restaurant, regardless of orientation.

Nucleo is on display at the Chambers Gallery (207 SW Pine) from now until November 26th.
