In response to chaotic and difficult times, artists continue making art, expressing their feelings while reflecting the beauty and angst of the world. Underneath everything is a delicate tension between fragility and strength.  

The New York Artist Equity Association’s exhibition, Shifting Balance speaks to the isolation and anxiety of the current atmosphere, and a search for equilibrium. Between loss and discovery, chaos and construction, growth and decay, the known and the unfathomable, these artists have put their finger on a flickering pulse, cultivating myriad possibilities that struggle and flourish. 

Here, balance is found in real and imaginary landscapes and environments, human architecture and skeletal remains— grounding us on earth and tying us to a place and a history. Symbols and icons remind us of birth, death, and infinity while the abstraction of patterns, rhythms or cosmic bodies hovers far above the mundane. Some works are playful, dancing with color; others approach with somber stillness. That ever-shifting dialectic, never achieving equipoise but perpetually pinballing between two extremes, finds expression in the diverse selection of works that make up this show.
