Join for the closing reception of the â€˜Valdeziacsâ€.Â The Michael Margulies Artist Agency is proud to present â€œThe Valdeziacsâ€ a solo exhibition featuring new works from painter Kiki Valdes. â€œThe Valdeziacsâ€ is the culmination of Valdesâ€™ most recent works. Many of the current paintings move into a new direction for the artist. Cartoon characters provide the first entry point to Valdesâ€™ complex explorations of layered cut canvas collages, abstractions and figurative cartoon imagery. He paints the excited, cryptic images of bubbly faces and toon masks to convey a feeling of childhood nostalgia as a visual tactic to address space and form.
