Like the Samurai, Nakamura employs a terrible beauty in her gouache, graphite and colored pencil renderings. Furry animals curl up and caress, their pearly whites sprouting into fangs. Blossoms and leaves tickle in sensuous suffocation, while fragile faces confront skeletal ancestors. The Japanese born artist summons an almost ancestral understanding of detail and nuance paying homage to the floral art of ikebana, where line, form and shape are elevated in her colorful works– Juxpapoz.com / Look Toward the Future, But Not So Far As to Miss Today: Fumi Nakamura @ Thinkspace Projects
Thank you to our friends at Juxtapoz for writing a thoughtful feature on Roby Dwi Antono whose exhibition “Epos’ opens tomorrow, Saturday, February 6th. Please visit the Juxtapoz website for the full piece, and schedule your visit to the gallery to see his surrealist work in person here.
When Indonesian artist Roby Dwi Antono titled his latest exhibition EPOS at Thinkspace, he could easily have been referring to the history of surrealism. Derived from the Bahasa language, Epos, “an epic poem, or epope, is a lengthy narrative poem, ordinarily involving a time beyond living memory in which occurred the extraordinary doings of the extraordinary men and women who, in dealings with the gods or other superhuman forces, gave shape to the mortal universe for their descendants, the poet and his audience, to understand themselves as a people or nation.”Juxtapoz.com | Roby Dwi Antono is the Talk of the Town in “Epos” @ Thinkspace Projects

Who hasn’t put on a brave face, who hasn’t failed at the effort, and who hasn’t simply shrugged attempting a sunny or steely-eyed facade? Sometimes it would just help to somehow define that feeling, but the words don’t emerge. \So often, there’s comfort in knowing another person is feeling the same way. With her mantra, “Empathy is always the key. Don’t judge, listen”, artist Edith Lebeau is here to offer not only the comfort of connection, but insight into recognizing the needs of others.– Juxtapoz.com | Certain Scars Can’t Be Seen: Edith Lebeau @ Thinkspace Projects, Los Angeles
