Brian M. Viveros ‘Fearless’ – oil and acrylic on maple board
Thinkspace is pleased to be returning to New York City next week for the 16th edition of SCOPE New York which will be returning to its location one block from the Armory Show Piers at Metropolitan West Pavilion. We will be featuring a solo show from Brian M. Viveros along with various works from our Thinkspace Family this coming March. This special presentation of new work is Viveros’ first on the East Coast since 2012. The past year has been a significant one for the artist, following Viveros’ hugely popular and sold out exhibition with the gallery in November 2015, Matador, and the launch of his first art book The Dirtyland; the 216 page, full color monograph surveys 18 years of Viveros’ work, and is the first publication released by Thinkspace Editions. This dedicated project at Scope will offer East Coast and international fans alike a chance to access brand new, never-before-seen works by the artist.
Brian M. Viveros ‘Cleopatra Forever’ – oil and acrylic on maple board
The mini-solo show will include phenomenal new paintings and charcoal drawings, some of Viveros’ very best and most accomplished to date. Gorgeously detailed, the saturated paintings continue the use of meticulous patterning, figurative hyperrealism, texture, and prop detail that Viveros had channeled throughout his last show Matador.Alongside these paintings are a series of new charcoal works on paper executed in a much looser and more gestural rendering style.The level of depth and minutiae in the work is greater than ever, as his signature no holds barred vixens haunt from incredibly complete surfaces. With new palettes and contrasting color combinations that include everything from deep plums and teal blues to cobalts and his signature crimsons, Viveros’ Dirtyland continues to stake its claim as an undeniably seductive empire…ruled by smoking hot sovereigns.
Cinta Vidal ‘Connected and Disconnected’ – acrylic on wood panel
SCOPE New York’s convenient and well-appointed venue will host 60 international galleries and a focused schedule of special events, performances and talks to complement its new open-plan exhibition format. The first fair to run concurrent with The Armory Show, SCOPE New York’s spirit of innovation has consistently forged the way for emerging artists and galleries. Attuned to nuances in the market and itself an influential force in the cultural sphere, SCOPE continues to usher in a new vision of the contemporary art fair.
