Stella Im Hultberg (interviewed) made her solo return to Los Angeles this past Friday with “Memento Mori” (previewed) at Thinkspace Gallery. Greeting patrons as they walked through the door was an impressive mural featuring Stella’s luscious lipped women on a “nature-esque” green backdrop – a small taste of the breathtaking body of work that awaited them. Inside the gallery, Stella’s talent was showcased across a variety of surfaces, from deep-hued canvases that were bursting with emotion, to intricate pieces on wood and tea-stained paper, as well as some hand-painted wood figures, which were a huge hit.
