Thinkspace is pleased to present Love Conquers All: Art For Equality, a special exhibition supporting the fight for equality which aims to raise awareness for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) struggle in the process. This special exhibition features the work of over 50 international artists and promises to open eyes and encourage dialogue. Also showing concurrently in our project room will be Well There You Are, an exhibition of new works from Oakland based artist Seth Armstrong, in what will be his debut solo exhibition with our gallery following numerous group show appearances including taking part in last December’s Aqua Art Miami during Art Basel.

ALSO ON VIEW IN OUR PROJECT ROOM:
Artist Seth Armstrong, on view in our project room, creates narrative paintings. Exactly what these narratives are, however, he probably could not tell you. Whether the subject matter is based on found reference or from the imagination, an ambiguous storyline is always present. Even in a straightforward portrait, the circumstances that surround the subject(s) and the instance of the portrait are deeply considered. With an uncertain plot, the stories behind the paintings can be limitless. Sure, the artist has his theories, but these do not take precedence over those of the casual viewer.
Since the paintings themselves are approached individually, the relationship between one piece and another is often disjointed. As a result, a common thread among a body of work is realized (if at all) only after they are completed and viewed as a whole.
