Thank you to all that came out to support our big show from DALEK (aka James Marshall). The Return of the Space Monkey has been a big hit so far and this coming Tuesday through Saturday are your final days to catch this special exhibition in person.
Some great works are still on hand and all original drawings are framed and ready to hang in an array of bright primary colors.
New screen print editions from DALEK will be shared online via our new web shop in late January. Watch for further details to be shared soon.
We kicked off the month with a (third) eye-opening exhibition from Noségo and Drew Leshko. The colorful dreamscapes from Noségo vibrated on the white walls with bright spirit animals holding within curiosities and stories to encourage our own reflection or simply enjoyment. Leshko continues to document the changing landscape of the hometown of both artists, Philadelphia. He encapsulates, with great detail, the passage of time and gives meaning to parts of the city’s history that would be soon forgotten at the hands of a bulldozer.
Artist, Joseph Martinez rounds out the exhibitions showing eight pieces from his Designer Bag Lady series in the Thinkspace Gallery office.
All of the exhibitions are on view now through June 29th.
To view available pieces from Noségo, Drew Leshko, and Joseph Martinez; please visit the Thinkspace Gallery website.
We’d like to thank everyone who came to the opening reception of Marco Mazzoni “Dear Collapse”, Atsuko Goto “The Silence of Idols”, and Alvaro Naddeo “Discarded”. In the installation space of the main room, a video of Marco Mazzoni’s moleskin notebook played while those in attendance perused the breathtaking new work. Atsuko Goto’s haunting images drew people closer to inspect the hypnotizing eyes within her work, while Alvaro Naddeo’s detailed compositions challenged viewers to question their own observations of the world.
All three exhibition are on view now through March 25th.
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.
View available work from Anthony Clarkson and Jolene Lai on the Thinkspace website.
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.

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7 from 6-9PM
January 7 – January 28, 2017
Concurrently on view in the Thinkspace project room is Limpid, featuring new works by San Francisco-based artist So Youn Lee. Her works depict a pastel-colored world of innocence and whimsy and follow the surreal adventures of a serial character she’s named Mango and her entourage of fanciful, candy-tinted friends. Inspired by 90’s illustration and short animation films, Lee creates a crystalline universe of translucent textures and glassy surfaces. Her densely textured and stylized works are executed in a harmonious blend of oil and acrylics, varying from canvas to panels.
In this new body of work, Lee chases the visualization of nostalgia, creating pieces that invoke a sensory-based recall of childhood and its immersive experiential innocence. Known for her representations of an ambiguous, positivist, and captivating inner world, Lee creates delicately outlined figures pulled from effervescent fantasy. Light and playful, her world is a genderless, intergalactic, pristine, and suspended in a patterned space of bubbles, soft gelatin- like contours, and brilliant sparkling light.
Please join us on Saturday, January 7th to welcome in the new year and celebrate the opening of two new incredible bodies of work.
