Others look around at the evolving landscapes of society and the natural world and respond to the ideals and communities they see being built or altered.

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 16, 5-9pm

Jessica Burko
ArtProv Gallery
150 Chestnut Street
Providence, RI 02903

Solo exhibition in Burko’s most recent chapter of striving to make sense between the dichotomy of asserting an identity as an individual and being lost in the onslaught of responsibility to others. Beneath thick layers of encaustic medium figurative images are captured in frenzied motion seeming to emerge out of the haze. Created as a response to the demands of modern motherhood, Quiet/Loud treads heavily on unspoken taboos.
