Cris Worley Fine Arts is excited to announce our first solo exhibition of work by Houston-based
artist Kelli Vance. Myth Maker opens Saturday, April 5th from 6 – 8pm with an artist’s reception
and will run through May 10, 2014.

Vance’s painted female figures have the air of a psychological thriller. The women in her
paintings are in mysterious yet tense situations, their poses sometimes provocative or
suggestive, but there is always an element of the unknown to the scenes created. Vance
wants the viewer to become involved in her scenes, to make them feel as though they
walked into a room while these events are taking place.

Myth Maker was inspired by Vance’s current living situation, a fourplex apartment building
shared by 3 other single women. The old building has created interconnectedness between
these women as they can often hear each other through the thin walls, and the aging
nature of the building itself creates odd situations that the women share. This living
arrangement has interested Vance in how space and circumstance inform the
development of identity through a complex web of experiences.

Kelli Vance graduated from the University of Houston with her MFA in 2008. In 2009
her work was selected for a solo exhibition in the Texas Biennial in Austin. Vance’s work
has shown across Texas as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Mexico.
