Artist's Statement

David Borawski

Iconic societal events can define a time, a place, a beginning and an end. We sit in front of glowing screens and watch in helpless awe as democracy plays out its endgame. Corporations were given constitutional protections while humans are being denied those same protections. All the while, the escapades of celebrities-gone-wild and murderous psychopaths are held up before our eyes like shiny objects in the hands of hypnotists.

The work in this exhibition seeks to draw upon and highlight a select group of those game changing events, suggesting connections, similarities, oddities and mysteries, as the viewer navigates the veiled layers of information and follows the bread crumb trail out of the forest.

Opening Reception

Please join us on Friday December 13, 2013 (6 p.m. 8 p.m.) to celebrate this new exhibition in the ArtWalk at Hartford Public Library, located in the heart of the city at 500 Main Street.

About the ArtWalk

ArtWalk at Hartford Public Library offers one of the largest and most stunning exhibition spaces in greater Hartford and the opportunity for visitors to view art in a magnificent setting in their own community.  The state-of-the art gallery rises above Main Street along a glass wall that floods the space with ambient light during the day and appears to glow as a jewel box at night. Exhibitions offer an array of art experiences that reflect a variety of media, styles, and cultures in the art world, providing diverse viewing experiences, and allowing for many tastes.  Because of the unusual cable system in place, one of the most unique aspects of the ArtWalk is that any wall and lighting configuration or arrangement can change with the nature of every new exhibition.  The ArtWalk is made possible through the generosity of donors, especially the Beatrice Fox Auerbach Foundation Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
