Love Letters, or Other People's Problems

Jacqueline Sylvia Solo Exhibit

URI Providence Campus Library Windows/Providence Art Windows

September 2-26, 2014

Love Letters, or Other People's Problems, investigates vulnerabilities of humanness. Some such themes include the uncanny, environments of sarcasm, and the need to escape. Paranoia as a function reveals new forms of reality and the resistance to closure. Paintings, sculpture, and assemblage are physical and often-supernatural gestures that are of my own created reality. Apparitions, words, compiling tangible parts, challenge us. But really, is it about other peoples' problems or was it love all along?
