Healing and Loving

July 9, 2016 - July 23, 2016

The BAR vol.9 exhibition, "Healing and Loving" will show a mix of older works with new works made in Tokyo including camouflage based paintings and painted found wood pieces by Chaw Ei Thein and almost invisible white nail drawings and new sculptural pieces by Krishnapriya Tharmakrishnar.

Although both artists make works rooted in experiences and memories related to war, loss and insecurity it is also true to say that their artistic expressions are gestures for reconciliation and love for all people. They express powerful commitments to the experiences of women and mothers, engaging deeply with materials.
