Preview: Liz Brizzi and Jolene Lai at Thinkspace

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Many people experience a sense of loneliness in large cities despite the fact that one would be hard-pressed to find a corner of a metropolis where one could be entirely alone. Liz Brizzi’s upcoming show at Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City, “Adrift,” is a reflection of the artist’s solitary wanderings in Los Angeles. For anyone who has spent time in LA, one of the striking things about Brizzi’s body of mixed-media work, which combines painting, photography and collage, is that she leaves the streets completely bereft of people and vehicles. Brizzi’s Los Angeles is a ghost town, not so much to inspire fear, but to provoke curiosity about the less-glamorous corners of the city rarely shown in the media. Brizzi’s contemplative collection of artworks will be accompanied by Jolene Lai’s joyful solo show, “Play,” in the project room, where the artist celebrates the imagination with paintings of whimsical exploration. Both shows open April 26 and will be on view through May 17.
