Esao Andrews for “The Gilded Age” at Thinkspace Gallery.

Opening on Saturday, September 12th at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles, California is the extremely anticipated three person exhibition, “The Gilded Age,” featuring the epic work of Esao AndrewsAaron Horkey, and Joao Ruas.  Above is Esao’s contribution for the show which as a whole is described as “[A] fortuitous result of a seemingly unlikely petproject, and a rare and unprecedented opportunity for collectors, fans and enthusiasts to see these three illustrative giants wring life from inanimate sands.”

Esao is considered (and I strongly share this sentiment) a master of the New Contemporary art world, for Andrews creates “emotive narratives and allegories through the intuitive juxtaposition of imagery. Often combining human and natural worlds in a mashup of symbolic gestures, Andrews’ highly detailed works resonate with the ghosts of our sub-conscious.”

If you’re in Los Angeles, do not miss this show.
