The Main Street Jukebox in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artist’s Reception on Saturday August 6th featuring the works of Kayla O'Connor. When one encounters Kayla’s work, one is immediately confronted with images that challenges the imagination enhancing the desire to interpret each piece along with the perspective one utilizes throughout the ordinary activities of life. Those who were fortunate enough to visit The Main Street Jukebox for the reception met some of the most unusual and inventive works of art seen throughout the Monroe county, PA area.
There is one piece that seemed to define the entirety of the exhibition. Upon it is written the words, “I’m so Good I’ll Put Thoughts in Your Head.” This is exactly what Ms O'Connor does as the double, triple, and even quadruple meanings found within the imagery adds to those commonly found only in the most lucid and bizarre of dreams whose understanding of which can reveal the greater mysteries of the universe and are the stuff new religions are born. Although it’s safe to say there is little (if any) intent on Ms O'Connor part to initiate a new systematic faith configuration, it is safe to infer a profound experience does take place in the minds of each person who absorbs her work and their inner meanings.
