Art Reception: Paradox by Jill Law
Drop by to meet artist Jill Law, whose art exhibit Paradox will be on display throughout the month of October.
About the Exhibit:
Paradox, by definition, is contradiction. Something made up of opposites that seem impossible but are actually true. Is this the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning? In this collection of work, one will see the precarious balance between representational and abstract expressions. Often this journey is a contradiction that comes together in the end. The exhibition will include paintings using various mediums, digital and analog photographs, and sketches that show the process.
