Residential Movement by Stephanie Armbruster, mixed media, 2011
Stephanie Armbruster's solo exhibit, In Search of Something More, opens at 709 Penn Gallery this Friday night during the Gallery Crawl!
(5:30-9:00 pm in Downtown's Cultural District)
Visually influenced by street art, design and documentary photography, Stephanie describes this new series of encaustic and mixed medium paintings as a reckless commentary inspired by the absurdities of urban life, random encounters and the tension of the city in a state of flux. Recollections of cheap rent, budget glam, underground music and demolition come together in a stream of consciousness rant of overbearing typography and architectural elements.
