Thinkspace Family artist Scott Listfield was recently interviewed in Art Maze Mag discussing astronauts, isolation, and his artistic wisdom. We still have a few pieces from Scott Listfield’s well-received solo presentation in the Vault Gallery at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History that are available on the Thinkspace Gallery website.

AMM: What influences outside the visual arts inspire and impact your approach to making work?
SL: Oh lots of things. I think there’s a ton of amazing art happening right now, but I’d say that most of my influences come from elsewhere. Books and movies, particularly science fiction. Cartoons, both contemporary and the ones I watched growing up. I listen to a lot of music in the studio which sometimes sets the tone for what I’m working on. I also like to get out and walk around when I can, especially places far from home. Seeing new things gets me back in the mind set of my astronaut.
Thank you to Arrested Motion for covering Exploring The New Contemporary Art Movement: Part IV exhibition. Jump over to Arrested Motion’s website to explore the exhibition and view all available work from the show on the Thinkspace Gallery website.
Artists were asked to contribute 12 x 12″ pieces leading to a visually conforming display of works. Rounding things out was a showcase for Shok-1 (seen below) and a Homer Simpson x Banksy parody installation by Oak Oak (seen above). – Arrested Motion
The Illusion Scene 360 recently interviewed Thinkspace Family artist Marco Mazzoni discussing his artistic background, his desire to work with colored pencils, and his upcoming exhibition with us “Dear Collapse” opening March 4th.
The interview includes beautiful images of his work and insight into this talented artist. Visit illusion.scene360.com for the full interview.
In this show I try to underline through my artworks the sensations, mostly negative, intervening between people. For instance, when a human being interacts with another human being, the feelings that show up in this encounter are very similar to those we can retrieve in the world of animals. Although passive, we are always talking about violence. – Marco Mazzoni
A powerful new piece from Icy and Sot in Brooklyn, New York. ICY (born 1985) and SOT (born 1991) are stencil artists from Tabriz, Iran, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. Since 2006, the two brothers have contributed to Iranian and international urban art culture through their striking stencil work depicting human rights, ecological justice, social and political issues. Their work appears on walls and galleries throughout Iran, USA, Germany, China, Norway, and continued to spread across the globe. They transcend their histories of artistic and political censorship by using public art to envision a world freed from borders, war and gun violence. We are honored to work with them.
