Inside the Studio of Dustin Myers for ‘Perfectly Normal’

Inside the Southern California studio of Dustin Myers as he wraps up the work on his solo exhibition ‘Perfectly Normal’ set to open on November 4 at Thinkspace Projects.

“In our pursuit of perfection, we tend to overlook the beauty that exists in imperfection. ‘Perfectly Normal’ serves as an ode to those idiosyncratic qualities that make us unique. It challenges conventional standards and invites viewers to see the extraordinary in the ordinary, the exceptional in the everyday. My goal is to highlight the small things about ourselves that make us unique. Sometimes they may not be conventionally attractive, but they are perfect how they are. You can still be perfectly normal and feel extraordinary. By elevating the imperfect to the extraordinary, this collection aims to redefine our understanding of beauty and inspire a new sense of self-acceptance. Through meticulous attention to detail, I aim to highlight the subtle nuances that shape a person’s identity. These portraits are not about capturing a flawless facade, but about revealing the depth and character that lies beneath the surface and about the diversity and richness that exists within us, inviting viewers to see themselves and others through a lens of appreciation and acceptance.” – Dustin Myers

‘Perfectly Normal’ opens on November 4 in Gallery II with a reception from 6-10pm at Thinkspace Projects.

Inside the Studio of Aof Smith for ‘Vibration’

Inside the studio of Aof Smith in Thailand as he prepare for his sophomore U.S. solo exhibition, ‘Vibration.’

The Bangkok-based contemporary artist expresses his perception and imagination through the limitless possibilities of Pop-surrealism. With loveable characters that create whimsical scenarios and dynamics, Smith balances an innate dark humor with lighter, brighter elements. Drawing inspiration from manga, science fiction, and other art forms, Smith creates the unique creatures he calls “Furries.” These fantastical characters are rendered in complex detail, often accompanied by unsettling elements like lit fuses and missiles, reflecting Smith’s satirical take on modern society.

Environmental consciousness is a driving force behind his art. In a world struggling with consumerism and waste, Smith contemplates what legacy humanity will leave for future generations. Smith’s goal for the future is simple yet ambitious: to continue creating, fueled by a commitment to his artistic vision.

‘Vibration’ opens on November 4 in Gallery III with a reception from 6-10pm at Thinkspace Projects.

A look inside the Bangkok studio of Alex Face (b. 1981 Thailand) as he wraps up the work for ‘Fictional City,’ our sophomore solo exhibition with the artist.

We are excited to welcome Alex back following successful solo exhibitions in Bangkok, Thailand and Rome, Italy. His signature subject, a quizzical smoking baby, can be seen contemplating the future, turning an eye to the world around it, an extension of Alex Face’s identity as an artist with a social conscience.

‘Fictional City’ opens on Saturday, November 4 in our main gallery with a reception from 6-10pm at Thinkspace Projects. Alex Face will be in attendance all the way from Thailand.

“In COHABIT I go inside houses and approach public spaces, leaving behind the planetary compositional aspect of my previous works. I’m intrigued by the relationship that people establish between themselves and their immediate surroundings and now I’m zooming in to find out what’s going on in there. In contrast to my most recent works, where I played with darkness, I now strongly illuminate the scenes, which take on more vitality.

We live the spaces we cohabit from our unique vision, which may not have anything to do with the vision of the “other.” Multiplying gravity allows me to express that there are many possible perceptions of our environment. The everyday, can contain common places, but also many abysses. And I’m always surprised by the ability that humans have to live uncertainty with calmness and a certain indifference.

In this body of work, all the paintings have in common a frontal view, with a central vanishing point. Thus, I accentuate the confrontation between a parallel and ordered structure with the “disorder” of the various orientations. I also added the mirror effect in some frames. It allows me to turn the figures upside down and increasing the confusion of the viewer in the game upside down. Finally, I wanted to honor painters I admire and respect by placing some of their paintings in my scenes. You will find paintings by Piet Mondrian, Mark Rothko, Gustav Klimt, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Bauhaus.” – Cinta Vidal
