Thank you to all that came out to support Timothy Karpinski and Dan-ah Kim this past Saturday. Patrons found themselves sucked into the worlds of Timothy and Dan-ah as their works are just brimming with hidden treasures like hand-sewn elements, hand-cut goodness and so much more. In addition to the works on view, ‘This Is Forever’ also showcases a wonderous installation from Karpinski which in part showcases his 1st short film, ‘This Is Forever’. Sadly Eveline Tarunadjaja, on view in our project room, was not able to come in from Australia for the festivities, but her works made it and are SO incredibly detailed, please be sure to take a look if you make it through during the next couple weeks.
Both shows demand to be viewed in person due to the vast amount of detail hidden within each work, not to mention Karpinski’s fun-filled installation. From the smooth, brushless look of Timothy Karpinski‘s work to Dan-ah Kim’s delicate hand-stitched creations on through to the hyper detailed ink and watercolour works of Eveline Tarunadjaja, both exhibits offer so much to those that come out to view them this month in person.
‘This Is Forever’ features a collection of over 40 mixed media works on paper and wood from two artists that openly wear their hearts on their sleeves. Timothy Karpinski‘s journal-like acrylic and graphite works on hand cut-paper are the perfect compliment to Dan-ah Kim‘s delicate works featuring the plight of her heroines in worlds both unnatural and familiar brought to life with gouache, hand-cut paper, hand-stitching, and other various mixed media.
ALSO showing concurrently in our project room will be ‘Split Ends’, an exhibition of new works from Australian based and Indonesian born artist Eveline Tarunadjaja in what will be her first solo exhibition with our gallery following her appearance in the Audrey Kawasaki curated show ‘The Drawing Room’. With ‘Split Ends’ Eveline has taken her delicate works on paper to all together new levels of intricacy and emotion.
If anything grabs you, please shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy the shows.

“This video was made as an installation element for my show at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles titled This is Forever, opening this Sat, April 9th 2011. I wanted to showcase things that inspire me and things I collect: old things, colorfull things, wooden things, childrens books. I’m really just a big kid, and I’m not afraid to say I like to play with toys.” – Timothy Karpinski
‘This Is Forever’ featuring new works from Dan-ah Kim and Timothy Karpinski opens to the public this Saturday, April 9th at Thinkspace. Both artists will be in town for the kickoff and you can meet them this Saturday from 6-8PM.
