Friday 4.8.16 | 6PM @ UnSmoke Systems | FREE
1137 Braddock Ave. Braddock, PA 15104
Thing Change is the latest solo exhibition created by Wilkinsburg artist Haylee Ebersole–a body of work that represents her take on the “anthropocenic landscape” and traces she contemplates our human existence may leave behind. Artwork featured includes an array of vaporous, dense sculptural objects floating between the familiar forms of man-made objects and the unruly formations of organic matter. Ebersole’s unique approach incorporates rare materials such as crystallized gelatin, storage containers, trash and architecture to create abstract objects, motifs, and images that infiltrate our daily lives–from archaeological finds, to organic matter, to geological formations, and man-made objects.
