Over the weekend, Thinkspace Gallery opened a new show from Brian Mashburn entitled simply New Works. Specializing in desolate landscapes that feature silhouettes of the ruins of civilization or abandoned construction, the Ashville-based artist further develops the atmosphere with the palette he uses for the background. The misty skies and hues that speak to either the end of an age or the dawn of one is not devoid of hope as Mashburn typically includes an animal or character in the foreground that becomes the focus of the composition. Check out the paintings for yourself through July 12th.
