Beth Shadur - April 2006

Tikkun Olam Mural(Heal the World) 

During the month of April, I will be painting a mural in this window.  You are welcome to watch as I work.

My works are narrative in nature, telling stories and creating connections through symbols and sometimes jarring combinations of images.  The work combines plant forms and other forms from nature, architectural references, objects both real and imaginary, objects traditionally associated with women through history, and most currently, the hand, to weave a narrative that is oblique, often personal, and sometimes political or issue-oriented. 

The works are intended to create prayers for world healing.
