Audrey Pongracz // Earthenware
July 13th - 28th, 2018
“The pieces in this show are based upon our current existence as earthbound vessels, and during our time here we can feel buried and trapped by our earthly problems”
For Detroit native Audrey Pongracz, a tug of war between the weight of the mortal world, and keeping faith in heavenly things to come is the driving force behind her first Arch Enemy collection, Earthenware. Through a series of mostly figurative paintings, each scene feels less like a struggle, or a symptom of pain, and more like a moment of pause. A deep breath to find inspiration and refocus, and a visual reminder of the strength of human faith in trying times.
