‘Layers’ explores domestic violence
August 25, 2011 —
NARROWSBURG, NY — “Layers,” an exhibit of mixed media work by Nancy Palubniak, opens with a reception on Friday, August 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Alliance Gallery at the Delaware Arts Center, 37 Main St. The exhibit will be on view through September 17.
“In my work, internalized experiences rewrite themselves in the physical attributes of the external self and are revealed through gesture, facial expression, demeanor, stance and attitude,” said Palubniak who works across disciplines to produce 2D and 3D pieces to explore issues related to domestic violence toward women.
Palubniak’s work uses collage, painting, papier-mâché, printmaking, drawing and photography. She often draws female figures layered with textures of common household furnishings, such as wood-grain interior doors and patterned wallpaper, because, she says, “they can be seen as relating to the interior, domestic space, and provide a location to begin considering the work.”
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit www.ArtsAllianceSite.org or call 845/252-7576.
