The Bay Area is home to many things that remind us of our lost childhood, our forgotten innocence, and deep seeded secrets and dreams. Berkeley-based artist, Kukula, is one of those such reminders. This week she is travelling to Los Angelese with one of her largest exhibitions to date. Dream Catcher will open this Friday, March 14th, at Thinkspace Gallery. Her blog states: ‘In the past, whenever I began working on a show, I tried to capture an emotion that was generated by some important experience in my life. I tried to document the feeling, not the event. This time I am attempting to catch emotional currents with no evident experiential origin. Whereas my past paintings represented the nightmare feeling of real life, here I want to depict the emotional utopia one tries to keep sheltered within’.
