Last weekend, Thinkspace unveiled the highly anticipated debut of new artworks by Stella Im Hultberg, Mari Inukai, Audrey Kawasaki, and Amy Sol – In the Wake of Dreams.” The exhibition is an unofficial “reunion show”, continuing the story of 2007 group show “Four Dreams” at Compound Gallery, where the artists first met. “In the Wake of Dreams” is also a progression of each artist’s skill and imagination. The inspiration of the four artists ranges from pop culture, animation, fashion, and Alphonse Mucha, found in their unique interpretations of a modern sleeping beauty. While Audrey Kawasaki and Stella Im Hultburg played with the infinity of negative space, Amy Sol and Mari Inukai filled their dreams with a wonderland of sweet girls, flora, and monsters. Their wood panel artworks are complimented with a mini-show of the original concept pencil and ink sketches and set of new giclee prints. – Caro
