Kayla Mahaffey Gets "Deconstructed" @ Thinkspace Projects
Thinkspace Projects has two shows opening virtually this weekend; one of which, Hilda Palafox, we previewed earlier this week. The second is Kayla Mahaffey's Deconstructed, where the Chicago-born artist focuses on cartoon and photorealistic features into a unique fusion that feels like a fresh approach to the genre.
Mahaffey says of her work and being from Chicago that, “seeing the struggle and the support from the community made my work evolve to a concept that is personal to me. I continue to further my technique, and creativity in my field in order to paint a beautiful picture of a new world for those around me. Living in our society can be tough and most of the time we have to make the best of it. A wild imagination can take you so far, but at the end of the day we need to realize and observe the world around us. And the world around us is where I find my inspiration to paint. Colorful paintings that contain hints of whimsy and realism that tell a story of inner thoughts and personal issues that sometimes go unheard.”
Thinkspace makes note of their weekend schedule:
Saturday, May 2 at 12:00noon PST, they will post our professionally shot video tour of both May exhibitions to their Instagram TV. And from 1-2PM PST, they will go live on our Instagram Stories to tour both exhibitions, have a bit of fun, giveaway some stuff and answer some questions.
