Online fashion and lifestyle magazine Live Fast featured our August exhibiting artist Alex Garant earlier this year. The pieces highlight Garant’s artistic journey and hypnotizing work.
To immerse yourself in Garant’s ethereal work is to notice the luminous way she drenches her subjects in light, her otherworldly washes of color, how her women look directly at you with a powerful combination of vulnerability and quiet strength, but it is also to feel trapped inside an optical illusion, fighting the message from your brain that your eyes are playing tricks on you. – Live Fast

We love seeing our artists’ grace the pages of Juxtapoz, digital or print, but it’s not very often our curator is featured sharing insight into the inner working of Thinkspace Projects.
Anyone paying attention to the New-Contemporary scene for the past 10-15 years is likely well aware. His prolific work ethic runs one of the most professional and well-known spaces in the game. Mural festivals, art fairs, museum shows, private collections, on and on, have harnessed him an uncanny ability to provide opportunities for his artists on a multitude of platforms. If anyone has a handle on the evolving digital landscapes facing New-Contemporary galleries, it’s Andrew Hosner. ––Gabe Shaffer
