Kiki Valdes Drawing Chronicles

Kiki Valdes
The Drawing Chronicles

Opening Reception; Friday December 1, 2017 6-10pm
Open December 1, 2017 - January 1, 2018

The recent works of 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 ethereal art history themes of captivating muses, 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.

The Sofas Show by Sharif Salem

Swampspace invites you to The Sofa Show by Sharif “Slimting” Salem. Best known for the IG handle, Sofas of Little Havana, Sharif has been photographing discarded furniture as a chronicler in the greater interest of ethereal materialism that includes others such as Ad├ín Hernandez aka @ataritacos in Anchorage, Alaska. Together, their quirky visions of our cast away sofas are a sober reminder of our fleeting comfort and temporariness of art in a spinning cycle of usage and abandonment.
