LBMA is pleased to announce the opening of Jane Brucker: Fragile Thoughts this Friday, September 28. A hallmark of Brucker’s work is the combining of found objects and heirlooms with other materials—textiles, wood, glass, paper, text, and cast metals to create works with a resonant poetic spirit and a tactile sensibility. Objects and materials are transformed through Brucker’s attention to detail.
“Jane Brucker sifts through the layers of her own past, finding and retrieving things that have been left behind by her parents and grandparents, as well as the dearly departed of others. She incorporates them into her artwork, both as a way to remember and to honor the past. In re-working and re-framing these objects, she also suggests our own reconstruction and reconfiguration of memory.” (Words by Scarlet Cheng, LA based arts writer and educator)
Jane Brucker: Fragile Thoughts, is a collaboration with @judsonstudios and is supported by a generous grant from the @pasadenaartalliance.
