“Dressed for Success” By Jessica Burke Opening Reception

March 22, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Opening Reception Thursday March 22, 2018 from 4 to 6PM with Artist Talk at 5PM by Jessica Burke.

Artist Statement:

Death is our silent companion through life. It is our witness to childhood fantasies and adult realities. This collection of drawings investigates the fiction of identity through its performance in physical and cerebral spaces that demonstrate a willingness to project and construct meaning. These works call for interpretation through iterative, meditative and labored processes that respond to intuition rather than rhetoric. While these sentimental figures are absorbed with their own fantasy, they are still compelled to subvert conventional roles and relationships. They can acknowledge the absurdity of their circumstance by embracing the cultural detritus of the banal.

Open to the public. No tickets required.
