Tomorrow night in Los Angeles, the Thinkspace Gallery will be hosting the opening of Ana Bagayan’s (interviewed) newest solo show. Children of the Sun features paintings and drawings that are inspired by her fascination with our sun and the worlds around it with the title of the show referring to Ancient Armenia, before the introduction of Christianity. Based on the preview images, we think attendees will appreciate the mysterious and otherworldly feel of these new works. Discuss this show here. Discuss Ana Bagayan here.
