Thank you Jeff Hamada and Thinkspace Gallery for your invitation. It honoured me deeply!
For more than a decade Booooooom has championed visual artists from all over the world, presenting a unique mix of high and low brow work from both emerging and established artists. Curated by Jeff Hamada and presented by Thinkspace, “Seeing Red” presents all new works from a wide array of artists who’ve been featured on Booooooom over the past ten years, and with the spirit of the site in mind, there are legendary names and relatively unknown ones showing alongside each other.
The show took place in LA, on March 30th, 2019 at Thinkspace (6009 Washington Blvd), 6-9pm.
The artist was given the same challenge, to work within a 12×12 inch frame and to incorporate the color red into their work. The simple visual theme serves as a common thread connecting all the works—a pathway for the viewer to travel into and out of each piece—and provides a reference point to help understand the way this diverse group sees the world around them.
