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.

We have shown a bunch of double-exposure photography techniques on the site this year, and we are fans of the double exposure styled paintings of Pakayla Rae Biehn. Having shown at Thinkspace in the past, we were familiar with the work, but having seen that we showed you a few double-exposrure bodies of work this week, we wanted to showcase Biehn's paintings.
