Recently opened at Philadelphia’s Art Alliance was the solo exhibition of new sculptures, ‘Shiny Monsters’ by Philly based artist Adam Wallacavage (whose studio we visited here) Elaborating on his signature aesthetic, the jewel colored rooms were filled with a menagerie of sea creature chandeliers, including his infamous wild armed, candy hued Octopi among new additions such as dragon-esque headed beasts. Lowly lit, the rooms were filled with the lattice like shadows of the tentacles, adding an unexpected element of wonder to the work.
