Being the Same, but Different” mixed media

Opening Reception:  Friday, September 3, 6-9 pm 

Linda Sorkin Eisenberg’s work explores the thread that pulls together reality and fantasy. Constant Motion consists of seven triptychs relating to seven countries Linda has visited. She uses the naked eye and the camera to focus on beauty of a country through its faces. Linda uses embellishments on the flatness of the photograph to alter your experience from reality to the magical. In the Constraint installation the individual inconstancy is hidden by the rigid structure of the grid. The stiffness enables the mind to wander to the unpredictable nature of life. In other pieces with handkerchiefs, they are stiff and textured quite unlike their traditional delicate nature. By evoking the delicate while being rough they capture the lives of their owner.,
