Mystery Girls

Probably best known for her quirky-witty comic Patches, Kelly Vivanco is also an impressively talented painter with a smart, strong body of work. Measuring from palm-sized to door-sized her paintings primarily depict whimsically costumed girls in Wonderland-like scenes. Reminiscent at times of comic books and at times of tarot cards, the images are rich with color, depth and mystery...what are they thinking as they gaze innocently or rebelliously at you? Where have they come from and to where are they journeying? What else lurks in the dreamy imagination of this amazing artist? Kelly's work has been found in several California galleries and will soon be seen at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. Take a moment and wander into Kelly's wondrous world.
