Jacqueline Overby, a multi-disciplinary artist, began as an oil painter and has since moved towards more performative and sculptural efforts, most recently delving into the social practice realm. As a progression, she is currently working on expanding her practice with abstracted soft sculpture and needle felted forms.

Overby takes inspiration from childhood cartoon aesthetic, pop cultural standards and her experiences with body dysmorphia. She is interested in the feminine, the masculine, and the non-binary and their relation to exaggerated geometric form, societal expectations and sexual innuendo. Some of the allegories in the work touch on the conversations between the comforts of childhood toys and the traumas of adulthood as it relates to nostalgia and a yearning for a lost innocence.

The exhibition will be on display 24 hours a day; he artist reception will be held on August 12 from 7-9 pm.
