Tonight at Thinkspace will see the opening of Allison Sommers' latest body of work, "Potter's Field." A fascinatingly noxious layer cake of bestial warfare, medieval tortures, meaty inspections and rough beasts slouching toward their doom, her work simply must be seen in intense proximity to be believed. You can learn more about Allison's visceral underworld from this revealing conversation we had a couple of years ago. For a little lagniappe, Esao Andrews' spooky yet sensuous exhibition "Nowhere" will also be on view in the main room.
I am obsessed with art, so whenever I see imagery that moves and inspires me, I need to write about it. In addition to the many profiles and interviews you can read here, I am co-author of Andrew Hem: Dreams Towards Reality, Dabs Myla: Midnight Fantasy, Mark Ryden: The Gay '90s, Edwin Ushiro: Gathering Whispers, Chris Berens: Mapping Infinity, Heroes & Villains and several other art monographs.
