In this intriguing talk, which will begin at 6:30 p.m., artist Jessica Burko will discuss her series Quiet/Loud, currently on display at ArtProv Gallery. She’ll share her inspiration behind the works and how they reveal her attempt to balance the expected roles of modern womanhood with maintaining a sense of self. Her pieces, which are self-portraits in motion, visualize the contradiction between asserting an identity as an individual and being lost in the onslaught of parenthood. She’ll also describe her many-step process of creating the mixed-media works, and how it is imbued with both meditative and monotonous motion driven by her need to reconcile the disparity of suffering and love. Following the discussion, guests will have the opportunity to ask Jessica questions and view the exhibit with newfound insights.
