OnJan. 20, 10, 2018,, ArtProv Gallery, in Providence, will host an artist talk featuring Jessica Burko.
The gallery says: "In this intriguing talk, Jessica 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.''
