Thinkspace is pleased to present Curioso a group exhibition featuring new work by gallery artists Jeremy Hush, Lindsey Carr, and Frank Gonzales. These artists’ respective, and unmistakably distinct, practices explore contemporary representations of the natural and animal worlds. Their imagery is derived uniquely, relying on a combination of observation, historical 19th century natural history and botanical references, and their personal experiences of nature drawn in sharp relief against their immersion in the urban.

Thinkspace is pleased to present A Quiet Place, featuring new works by Stephanie Buer and Linnea Strid. Both painters explore the solitudes that define their respective creative practices and subjects. Whether it be the desolation of forgotten urban spaces taking on ghostly traces and pregnant absences, as in Buer’s work, or the personal isolation of the artist and the anxiety of hyper-awareness, as in Strid’s - both artists delve into the recesses of poetic silence and separateness.

This Saturday, January 12, Dave MacDowell opens a big solo show, Project Mayhem, at Thinkspace in Culver City. (Actually, over 40+ galleries in Culver City are opening shows, so its a good night to get arted). Dave MacDowell’s work deftly combines satire, irreverence, and seething wit. A self-taught artist, MacDowell combines popular cultural references with the magnetism of the "dark hook", creating unexpected plays on popular culture that inject the familiar with blistering hyperboles.
