This November Thinkspace will celebrate our 5 Year Anniversary. To help celebrate we’ve put together a group show we can’t wait for everyone to see this coming November.

’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Sarah Joncas

Tell us a little bit about your piece for Thinkspace’s ‘5 Year Anniversary Show’ this November?
Much of the painting was developed on a whim, but as it progressed, a lot of native inspired imagery surfaced. I enjoyed the mixing of something sincerely natural with the plastic, funky appeal of a modern looking girl – even the markings are meant to look like they’ve been made with the lipstick she’s wearing.

What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
I was in my last year of high school, preparing to leave for art college to study ‘drawing and painting’ in Toronto.

Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
My music, the cat, paint supplies, the computer, my pajamas…

Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
I just want to be painting and living self sustainable… I’d hate to revert back in any way.

What have you got coming up in 2011?
I have a solo show in NYC at the Last Rites Gallery in April owned by Paul Booth. Have already started the work, too. I’m pretty excited! The work is certainly getting darker for this one.
