Opening night photos from Nagel, Nehrbass and Ramirez + Lindsey Carr at Thinkspace

Main gallery view

Thank you to all that stopped through our gallery this past Saturday as we kicked off our September exhibits. Culver City was alive with all the galleries open and the streets were filled with art lovers. Aaron Nagel, Jeff Ramirez and Lindsey Carr were on hand to greet them all and we heard repeatedly throughout the evening how much folks were enjoying both shows.

Big congratulations go out to Lindsey Carr on selling out her debut U.S. solo show. We’ve a handful of the free color pamphlets still on hand that profile each piece in the show, so be sure to come through soon and pick one up before they’re gone. Lindsey will be back in a few group shows with us early next year while her next major showing will take place up at Roq La Rue in Seattle next summer (details to be announced soon). Plans for a follow up solo showing with us for 2013 are already underway as well.

Opening night pics and digital preview links for ‘Being There’ and ‘Ghost of a Chance’

(l-r) Pakayla Rae Biehn, Jeff Ramirez, and Kevin Titzer

Thank you to everyone that came out last weekend for the opening of our new exhibitions featuring works from Pakayla Rae Biehn, Jeff Ramirez, Kevin Titzer, and David Cooley. There was a great energy in the air and all the artists work really played nicely off each other with many patrons jokingly referencing the OCD nature of all the works on view and if that played into this month’s curation. Each featured artist’s craft is unique and each intensely intricate in their own special ways, showcasing the almost unfathomable amount of time and focus needed to create each.

Platinum Cheese interview Jeff Ramirez

Jeff Ramirez 'Worry About It Later' - oil on panel - 24x30" (2011)

“The hyper-realistic nature of Jeff Ramirez’s work captures the honest and sometimes awkward moments of his subjects, unwittingly revealing their vulnerability. These moments of heightened emotions, paired with the compulsion to divert the onlooker’s gaze, make us all the more curious and pulls us in.” – Platinum Cheese

Arrested Motion interview Jeff Ramirez

Jeff Ramirez "Nothing Ever Happens (Still)" - 24x24" - Oil on wood panel (2011)

“I always felt like I was a different person depending on whom I was around, whether it be friends or family or whomever. It often felt unnatural, like a performance. Gradually, I realized that I had grown really skeptical of images and their supposed content, even images of myself. I just didn’t relate to them on the same level as I think a lot of people might. I was more interested in them for context or absurd moments than as mementos or reminders. And now, with the rise of digital photography, social networking and this blurring of reality, there is a real lack of emotional truth in many of these supposedly candid shots. I’m interested in using that look to create new images that do have emotional truth for me and so it is often necessary to obscure elements in order to make for a different experience from these rather ubiquitous images.” – Jeff Ramirez

‘Being There’ will showcase nine new oil paintings on wood panel from Ramirez. The digital preview for ‘Being There’ will be posted here tomorrow (Thurs, May 19th).
