Yesterday, AM stopped by Thinkspace Gallery to take a look at the new body of work from Kelly Vivanco. Entitled Peculiar Tides, the fresh paintings worked off a nautical theme where her characters are situated in seaside or underwater environments. Completing the whimsical nature of the show was an installation of ship sculptures (seen above) on a wall of waves, where some of the creatures seen in her work can be seen piloting the vessels.

Heading their show is master manipulator of pop culture and satirist, David MacDowell. You can’t help but smile when you see the skill in which David takes familiar elements and remixes them into a clever and unexpected composition – like Golem heading over to “Booger King” […]
