Thinkspace Family artist Dan Lydersen was recently featured on Hi-Fructose.com. We’ve loved working with Dan and showing him in various exhibitions. His piece ‘Terrestrial’ is currently on view in NEXUS at The Brand Library and Art Center, and will be showing new work at SCOPE MIAMI this December.

Though several of Dan Lydersen’s oil paintings are contemporary in content, the engine that fuels these works consists of timeless bouts with spirituality, nature, and materiality. There’s a surreal quality some; a somber realism in others. – Hi-Fructose
‘The Gilded Age’ featuring new works from Aaron Horkey, Esao Andrews, and Joao Ruas is an exhibition designed around opulence. When Thinkspace Gallery director Andrew Hosner approached Horkey and asked to describe his ideal group exhibition, Horkey immediately suggested Esao Andrews and João Ruas as choice gallery companions. All three artists share an inexhaustible penchant for detail, a preference for all things ornate, and an antediluvian sensibility that tends towards allegory and myth.
We hosted a VIP night for the artists and then the following night was the opening reception, the following photos are a mixture and recap of both nights. The artist did not do wardrobe changes mid-reception.
