Los Angeles, CA (July 13th, 2010) - Thinkspace is pleased to present Love Conquers All: Art For  Equality, a special exhibition supporting the fight for equality which aims to raise awareness for the  LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) struggle in the process. This special exhibition  features the work of over 50 international artists and promises to open eyes and encourage  dialogue. Also showing concurrently in our project room will be Well There You Are, an exhibition of new works from Oakland based artist Seth Armstrong, in what  ill be his debut solo exhibition with our gallery following numerous group show  appearances including taking part in last December’s Aqua Art Miami during Art Basel.

Artist Seth Armstrong, on view in our project room, creates narrative paintings. Exactly what  these narratives are, however, he probably could not tell you. Whether the subject matter is  based on found reference or from the imagination, an ambiguous storyline is always present.  Even in a straightforward portrait, the circumstances that surround the subject(s) and the  instance of the portrait are deeply considered. With an uncertain plot, the stories behind the  paintings can be limitless. Sure, the artist has his theories, but these do not take precedence  ver those of the casual viewer.


Since the paintings themselves are approached individually, the relationship between one  iece and another is often disjointed. As a result, a common thread among a body of work is  realized (if at all) only after they are completed and viewed as a whole.


ABOUT THE ARTIST (Seth Armstrong):
Seth Armstrong was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. After studying painting in  orthern Holland, he received a BFA with High Distinction from the California College of the  Arts in San Francisco. He currently lives and works in Oakland, CA.
