2020 Artist: Danielle Kelso

"Stagecoach" by Danielle Kelso of Manic Distractions in Des Moines. A "Cubist and abstract style painting of horses and a city it the background. But people see what they want!"

We really want to see unicorns and fuzzy kittens in there somewhere, but we've stared at it for hours and can't. So we're going with the horses.

"Distorting reality and objects to skew perspective to reflect a warped version of the world is one of my themes. Also my view on vapid pop culture perpetuated by money earned from social media.

I work with fluid acrylic paint and mixed media such as paper or flexible metal. Pop culture, movies and music are my inspiration. My style is pop art, abstract expressionism and still life."
