Amy is from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and now lives in Virginia. Amy Burczyk’s exhibit spans both states. A painter, an interior designer, a project manager for LG Flint General Contractors, and a mother of three—her paintings are a reaction to the transitions that life has taken her. Thick with symbolism, the imagery invites strangers to look deep into her life story and dares viewers to relate. The paintings are whimsy and hope derived from real life strife and upheaval. She uses characters like the polar bear to identify with. Polar bears are cute, but fierce; strong, but on the verge of extinction.
“We all walk that line,” we want to know that we will be here forever, but every one of us at some point is that polar bear.”
This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery.
