Gabriela Galván is Simply Playful

img_0742.jpgI have a confession, uber-serious artists bore me. Not because they are humorless, but because life is simply to short. My patience for them is short but then there are artists like Gabriela Galván which are a joy to behold because of their playfulness.

Galván’s recent show, “Simple Magic“, at Chelsea’s Haedee Rovirosa Gallery is supposedly inspired by “the transitory and ephemeral nature of her surroundings.” (source)

Regardless of the conceptual framework, Galván’s show (which closed last week) made me smile.

Here are some Spanish-language press articles about her show (reviews).
