Swampspace presents Kiki Valdes: The Drawing Chronicles.
Opens December 1, 2017 6-10pm
Recent works by Kiki Valdes are a maniacal storm of ink on paper. The drawings are delicate yet aggressive compositions of comedic abstractions and figurative visions of the artist’s recurring dreams. Mr. Valdes skillfully appropriates art history themes of the ethereal muse, captivating love triangles, social angst and piercing anguish. His ability to convey depth captivates viewers with a unique and powerful sense of emotional engagement. The work leaves us satisfied with our desire for beauty, humor and social relevance.
On December 5th from 6 to 9 p.m. Swampspace will host a book signing and reading by Richard Boch for his new book publication The Mudd Club (Feral House, Books & Books).
