Mending IV, mixed media

Mend What Has Been Torn Apart

Opening: First Thursday, May 3rd, 5:00 – 8:00 pm
Show Runs: May 3rd-26th, 2018

Artist Statement:

Camus’s quote, “We must mend what has been torn apart, make justice imaginable again…”, inspires Donohue’s continuing practice of building rich, dense structures of layers of newspaper, marked with the persistence of prayer. The repetitive mending, sewing and weaving of the newspaper elicits the heaviness of grief, the gratitude of reverence, and a fundamental foundation of hope.
