Kellesimone Waits Art Show 'Whats Your Power Animal' In New York City

First Posted: 06/25/11 06:18 AM ET   Updated: 08/24/11 06:12 AM ET

Kellesimone Waits, daughter of musician and actor Tom Waits, reaches into literature, myth and cultural archetypes in her new show 'What's Your Power Animal' at the Fuse Gallery in New York City.

Waits combines animal imagery from different cultures with casual business attire, juxtaposing the raw nature of animalistic urges and fantasies with the confines of modern society. The images are both strange and lovely, conjuring figures of Greek Myth and literary heroes and heroines. The furry figures recall childhood fantasies and imaginary friends but dressed in the trappings of adulthood.

See the show at Fuse Gallery, through July 6, 2011, 93 2nd Ave (between 5th & 6th St, 2nd Ave stop on the F), New York City.
