Video Tour & Opening Reception of Ryol’s ‘Caught In The Art,’ Shinnosuke Hariya’s ‘Power Up,’ Michael Polakowski’s ‘Anywhere & Here,’ and Abi Castillo’s ‘Allergic Party’ at Thinkspace Projects

Thank you so much to everyone that came out and helped us kick off our 2023 program this past Saturday.

In Gallery I, RYOL has returned with a new body of work that fills our space with paintings that showcase how light is the most fundamental element in the visual arts. ‘Caught In The Art’ is a play on the phrase “caught in the act,” and refers to the play of light in each of Ryo’s new oil paintings that appear to capture his subjects as if they have just been cornered and, indeed, caught in the act.

In Gallery II, Japanese drawing monster Shinnosuke Hariya presents ‘Power Up,’ a new series of 14 graphite works on an illustration board. This show is the artist’s debut North American solo exhibition.

Gallery III holds ‘Anywhere & Here’, a series of paintings that depict a shifting cast of protagonists from Detroit based artist Michael Polakowski. ‘Anywhere and Here’ is a reference to our own sense of presence. It acts as a response to the question asked by each painting in this series “where can we find clarity in our day to day lives?”

Gallery IV features ‘Allergic Party’, showcasing 30 incredible new ceramic works from Spanish artist Abi Castillo in her debut North American solo exhibition.

Shout outs to Jacqueline Valenzuela, Goopmassta, The Roll N’ Bunn, Venice Beats, Digital Debris Video Gallery plus all of this month’s exhibiting artists, everyone that rocked Goop’s Mini Mart, our family & everyone that helped to make this a night to remember.

All four exhibits remain on view until January 28.

Open Tuesday to Saturday from 12-6pm. Viewing Rooms for each show are now live on our website.

Video Tour & Opening Reception of Ben Tolman’s ‘Unmode,’ Hanna Lee Joshi’s ‘What Is It You Seek?,” Nika Mtwana’s ‘Protagonist,’ and Carl Cashman’s + Oscar Joyo’s ‘Hybrid’ at Thinkspace Projects

Thank you again to everyone who came out to celebrate the opening of Thinkspace Project’s new shows this past weekend.

In Gallery I, Ben Tolman brings his new show ‘Unmode,’ which is filled with the artist’s signature linear and architectural atyle. The artist used this collection to look inward at his own creative process.

What Is It You Seek?‘ by Hanna Lee Joshi is in Gallery II. Bringing her faceless subjects to life, the artist uses the collection to examine the deep seeded longing we carry with us through our lifetimes.

Nika Mtwana brings ‘Protagonist‘ to Gallery III. The artist draws on his life experiences in Johannesburg to uplift African identity using vibrant and stunning AfroFuturism portraits.

Artists Carl Cashman and Oscar Joyo unite in a joint show titled ‘Hybrid‘ in Gallery IV. Cashman’s vibrant work using neometry, a genre he coined, and Joyo’s exploration of color led by his chromesthesia, work together to make a stunning show.

All guests are encouraged to support the THINKSPACE TOY DRIVE. Bring an unwrapped gift (no gift wrap) to donate and Thinkspace will be giving out gift bags to all who provide a toy for a child in need. Many thanks to all that have already donated!

Shout outs to Brushwork, GoopMassta, The Roll N’ Bun, Timeless Vapes, DJ Venice Beats, Society of Shadows, Kabob Senpai plus all of this month’s exhibiting artists, our family and everyone that helped to make this an evening to remember!

All four exhibits remain on view until December 31.

Open Tuesday to Saturday from 12-6pm. Viewing Rooms for each are show are now live on our website.
