In her most recent body of work, which she has titled “Springs to Mind,” Kelly explores a secret place where both water and imagination flow freely — where random chance and make-believe intertwine. There we find intrepid heroines, voyagers and dreamers roaming among forest streams, stairwells, tree houses and enchanted pools. Gazing into their lambent eyes in the perpetual twilight, we are visited by that feeling of empathy and wonder that sparks the imagination to life.
Kelly Vivanco's first major solo exhibition, "Springs to Mind,"opens at Thinkspace Gallery on February 5th. You'll need to come out to appreciate her woodland installation, miniature house sculptures, and the magnificence of her largest painting to date.
