Coral Gables Gallery Night: Madison Sparks
Join us Friday, December 6th, 7- 10pm for the Coral Gables Gallery Night Opening
MADISON SPARKS: Virtuous Nettles
Madison Sparks’s exhibit “Virtuous Nettles” explores themes of intimacy, human roles in the natural world, and the ever-evolving relationship to self. She uses Prismacolors and acrylic paint in each piece to express psychedelic interpretations of the subconscious. Circumspectly applying her skills in both shading and painting to create intriguingly complex characters, Sparks’s works here can be understood here as extensive journeys into the artist’s dynamic inner world. Once these complex subjects are placed in front of surrealist landscapes, the combination stirs feelings of both familiarity and fantasticism in the viewer.
On view in our gallery through January 1, 2020
