Come to Thinkspace Gallery and see the exhibit “At the Crack of Dawn”

Thinkspace Projects is presenting a new solo exhibition from Italian artist, Millo “At the Crack of Dawn”. This is Millo’s fourth solo show and U.S. solo debut. He’s bringing a bit of new Italian culture to Thinkspace gallery in West Adams.

This exhibition is built around the around the fleeting point in time just before waking when everything is whimsical and the lines between dreams and reality are blurred.

“Just before the beginning of a new day, there’s a fleeting moment where dreams remain alive. All my new works come from there, as unconscious feelings passed through the haze of the shadow till the glimpse of light, shaping what is silent.” Millo says.

This past year was challenging, scary and dark. That initial shock of being scared and stuck gave Millo time to reconnect with his own imagination, and focus on what people globally were simultaneously doing: dreaming.

The exhibition is a collection of works in his signature predominantly black and white style. Millo creates the moment just before waking in a series of breathtaking scenes with the friendly inhabitants of each scene floating above their urban settings displaying a blend of dream and reality.

His characters are huge and clumsy and have to adapt to an urban habitat with new ways of living.
