Beauty Shines Through The Darkness

0 false 18 pt 18 pt 0 0 false false false

In this piece I wanted to express the beauty that shows through even in the darkness of cancer treatment.  The beauty of the fabrics, the colors and the beading.  The darkness of the burned and tattered chiffon that peeks out over the bra cups and the needle-like portion of the straps signify radiation and chemo.  I used suture stitches – one stitch, one knot at a time – to attach the bra cups symbolizing surgery.  I created my own pattern and hand stitched the entire piece.  It is imperfect but there is beauty in imperfection.  As an artist, this is my tribute to all who fight the battle – past, present and future.
