Los Angeles art gallery Thinkspace is curating a new show titled LAX/HKG that opens at Above Second on Friday, November 16th. The group exhibition includes artwork by Amy Sol, Audrey Kawasaki, Brian Viveros, Dabs Myla, Esao Andrews, Joao Ruas, Linnea Strid, and Yosuke Ueno.
Stylistically, there isn’t one theme that links all of the art together, however, several of the artists produce work with a moody, dream-like quality.
Audrey Kawasaki is known for creating images of young women across a variety of mediums, while Amy Sol features girls frozen in stylized settings with serene, contemplative looks.

Joao Ruas has done cover illustrations for the likes of DC Comics and Playboy, and his work has a sense of foreboding mystery.

The artists in LAX/HKG are slightly more established than those typically featured in previous Above Second shows.
To commemorate the special collaboration between the two galleries, there will be a limited edition run of fifty prints of ‘Shadows’ by Audrey Kawasaki available *only* on opening night. (See image at top.)
