‘5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Audrey Kawasaki – Thinkspace 5 Year Anniversary Show (Sat, Nov. 6th)

Audrey Kawasaki 'My Little Secrets' - Oil and graphite on wood panel - 24x24"

“If you’re looking for one art show to attend this year, I’d like to suggest Thinkspace’s upcoming 5 Year Anniversary blow out. Established in 2005, Thinkspace is one of the few galleries who doesn’t just follow trends, they start them.” – MyModernMet.com

’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Audrey Kawasaki

Tell us a little bit about your piece for Thinkspace’s ‘5 Year Anniversary Show’ this November?
It’s about flowy looseness and unpredictability. Random lines and colors. Intuition. Impulse. About inconsistency… How things change and pass.

What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
I just began showing at galleries around that year, so i feel like we started and grew together. I’m happy to still be a part of Thinkspace. 🙂

Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
A window with a breeze, a carpet/rug to lie on, laptop for muses and music, cats to lounge with, all my paints and brushes and panels and tools.

Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
I will keep painting. Hopefully have a book out by then. New projects. More shows in other countries. Travel. Live comfortably but with new thrills and excitement and change.

What have you got coming up in 2011?
A 3 or 4 person show at Merry Karnowsky in Spring and a four-person show at Thinkspace in Fall.

‘5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Camilla d’Errico – Thinkspace 5 Year Anniversary Show (Sat, Nov. 6th)

Camilla d'Errico 'Where The Wild Things Squirm' - Oil and acrylic on wood panel

’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Camilla d’Errico

What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
I was studying Illustration and Graphic Design at Capilano College in Vancouver, BC. Living for the first time away from my family and friends hatching a new path for myself. I started showing in galleries and found my passion in art.

Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
Music. My Mac. Anime figures. Grapes. Art books and manga.

Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
Hopefully my series Helmetgirls will be in full swing and I’ll be drawing that feverishly, along with Tanpopo and a whole world of figures and possibly producing my first anime. In five years from now I also hope to be living 4 months of the year in South East Asia in a remote little village, painting the days away, creating paintings that really re-inspire me!

What have you got coming up in 2011?
The release of my art book published by Dark Horse Deluxe and a toy line. I’ll be illustrating a fantasy graphic novel with a French publisher and a comic book for Spanish singer Monica Naranjo. As for paintings I’ll be doing a few very select group shows and working on a new body of paintings for Opera Gallery in New York.

‘5 Years / 5 Questions’ with David MacDowell – Thinkspace 5 Year Anniversary Show (Sat, Nov. 6th)

David MacDowell 'American Cracker' - Acrylic on canvas

“If you’re looking for one art show to attend this year, I’d like to suggest Thinkspace’s upcoming 5 Year Anniversary blow out. Established in 2005, Thinkspace is one of the few galleries who doesn’t just follow trends, they start them.” MyModernMet.com

’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with David MacDowell

Tell us a little bit about your piece for Thinkspace’s ‘5 Year Anniversary Show’ this November?
For the past month, I thought it would be cool to paint a picture of Richard Pryor getting hit in the head by a box of crackers. The image is indicative of his humor and attitude, and it definitely makes a broad statement on issues that we like to pretend aren’t there. I think the 70’s were revolutionary with the fact that we could laugh and talk about racial unity and differences. Now everything is so politically correct, I just feel like it’s all going backwards again.

What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
My whole past is full of nothing but bad memories, I really hate to dredge things up! I wasn’t an artist 5 years ago, and that alone smacks of a misdirected youth.

Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
Paints, Canvas, Music, Coffee and Smokes.

Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
My goal is to stay alive and out of jail. If I can do those two simple things, everyday will be like Christmas.

What have you got coming up in 2011?
It’s been group show madness the past 2 years, so I’m weaning them out for solo shows to explode mind, body and soul in 2011. Get down, make love, let’s get funky.

‘5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Ana Bagayan – Thinkspace 5 Year Anniversary Show (Sat, Nov. 6th)

Ana Bagayan 'Phasmida' - Oil on wood panel

’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Ana Bagayan

Tell us a little bit about your piece for Thinkspace’s ‘5 Year Anniversary Show’ this November?
I’m doing a series of drawings and paintings for my next show which feature portraits with insects crawling on the face and hair. It’s always been a fear of mine to have insects crawling on me and I like the idea that something so small and simple can give you the willies.

What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
Graduating from college.

Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
Music, my laptop, my boyfriend Ara and our dog Sushi, and coffee (I don’t like sleeping.)

Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
Still alive, hopefully.

What have you got coming up in 2011?
I have a solo drawing show at FB69 Gallery in Munster, Germany and various group shows (plus a solo with Thinkspace in early 2012).
