Exhibition: Wish for Wholeness, 2017

  • W83 Ministry Center 150 West 83rd Street New York, NY, 10024 United States (map)

April 12, 2017 - June 29, 2017

In “Wish for Wholeness” Beth Barron collects discarded bandages and other personal remnants to create a visual metaphor of the wounded yet resilient human spirit. The labor-intensive technique of hand-stitching that Barron practices becomes a spiritual exercise for the artist that allows time for personal reflection, contemplation, and eventual renewal. Barron’s finished works, a physical transformation from scraps into a whole, challenge us to consider our own suffering, brokenness and desire for healing.
