This Saturday, visit my favorite art gallery, Thinkspace in Culver City, to see the surreal works of Cinta Vidal. The figures in her paintings are so consumed, mostly reading books, that they don’t realize that they’re microcosmic worlds have been turned upside down. I like how each piece shows a sense of community yet gives the feeling of isolation.
The opening reception for Vidal’s show, called Gravities, will be held this Saturday, July 23rd from 6 to 9pm. You have till August 13 to check out her works in person. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite but, if I had to, I’d choose Reading Club, seen immediately below. Every single person is reading a book, getting lost in their own worlds. (The poor cats aren’t getting much attention.) How I’d love to collect her works.
