Michael Reeder featured on Creators

New to the Thinkspace Family, Los Angeles-based artist Michael Reeder was recently featured on Creators. The piece highlights Reeder’s work and it’s birth from the repetition of painting the same portrait to developing into the creation of different personas.  View the full article on the Creators website.

Essentially he’s a chemist, blending between cultural touch-points, religious iconography, and contemporary visual stylings.  – The Creators

We’re excited to be working with Michael Reeder on a new mural in LA, upcoming museum shows, and his solo in Miami December 2017.

 

Studio Visit with Seth Armstrong for “Pretty Deep Shit”

Seth Armstrong’s paintings self-consciously capture a sense of looking, arresting moments with cinematic detail and voyeuristic curiosity. Varying in scale, the paintings offer views that are alternately intimate and vast, moving expertly between the monumental and the minute. Laden with detail and suggestion, each piece offers a moment in the trajectory of a larger narrative, and the viewer is compelled to realign the fractures of these inconclusive moments. Hanging the works on suggestion rather than on the overt, Armstrong builds tension and excitement in every painting with the possibility and expectation of action.

Very excited to share this new body of work with you all soon. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks and details as we grow closer to the show.

Pretty Deep Shit opening at Thinkspace Gallery, April 29th.

Opening Reception of Jolene Lai’s “Beside You” & Anthony Clarkson’s “Trail of Wandering Thoughts”

The opening reception of Jolene Lai’s ‘Beside You’ and Anthony Clarkson’s ‘Trail of Wandering Thoughts’ buzzed throughout the night as those in attendance enjoyed the details of the artists work. Jolene Lai’s installation was a first of it’s kind in our main room and Clarkson pushed her artist technique switching from acrylics to oils in his latest body of work. The exhibition is one view now until February 25th.

SERGIO GARCIA INTERVIEWED BY PROHBTD

Thinkspace Family artist, Sergio Garcia is known for his life-size and sometimes larger than life sculptures of hands and vices. Garcia has created these idle hands portraying various scenes mostly seen outside of the white walls of the gallery space garnering attention from collectors and celebrities. PROHBTD recently interviewed Sergio Garcia to dive deeper into his process.

Currently, Sergio Garcia will be exhibiting several new pieces this weekend at The 4th Annual ‘POW! WOW! Exploring The New Contemporary Movement’. To view more of Sergio Garcia’s work visit the Thinkspace Gallery website and view PROHBTD’s full interview with the artist on their site.

At Art Basel in Miami, you exhibited a giant ashtray with a cannabis joint that you titled A Little Conversation Piece. What is the conversation people should be having about cannabis?

It’s really a conversation piece about everything in America. It’s weird how [cannabis] is legal here, not there, this county yes, maybe that county. It gets to this point where it’s like, is it taboo to smoke out in the open? Where are we on this? Where are we with anything? When I was younger, there was more middle ground. It’s gotten so extreme that common sense went out the window. Especially with Donald Trump, it’s like, what are we doing now?

Illusion Scene 360 Interviews Marco Mazzoni

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

Opening Night of Stephanie Buer’s ‘Uncommon Silence’ and So Youn Lee ‘Limpid’

We kicked off the year with two stellar exhibitions. In the main room Stephanie Buer entranced those in attendance with her latest body of work ‘Uncommon Silence’. The urban abandoned landscapes and often ignored landmarks of Los Angeles were rendered in picturesque detail.  Then in the project room So Youn Lee’s newest body of work for ‘Limpid’ dazzled in their whimsical neon pastel dreamlands and sticker glitter details.

Both exhibitions are on view now till January 28th.
