Luba does these strange, haunted, surreal interiors, rich in color and detail, always beautifully apped, and … just … odd. I love this image. Not sure what kind of room this is. A wobbly one, that’s for sure.

No small feat.

The title reminds me of some graffiti scrawled on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley, in the old days, when the Hells Angels hung out at Pepe’s Pizza next door to the Mediterraneum Cafe, filled with beatniks and hippies, and the Blue Cue Pool Hall, in whose waters some very serious pool sharks swam. Outside, on a wall: “Surprise is 4 walls and no floor.” Word.
