J. AMBER EGBERT
EXHIBITION ON VIEW: SEPT 27 - NOV 2, 2019
RECEPTION: SEPT 2 6 - 8 PM
In my work I am always searching for balance between contrasting or opposing elements. I see these elements often present themselves in my observations of motion versus stillness, masculine versus feminine, decorative versus stark, self-interest versus altruism, permanence versus ephemerality. Often these elements seem to conflict and to present difficulty when trying to exist side-by-side, yet often they do.
