"Barrier" is a series of large portraits by artist Marisa Bruno that investigate the impact of time and change on the body, specifically through how surgeries, age, weathering, and injuries alter our skin. "Even if an injury or surgical cut doesn't heal perfectly or wrinkles are permanently etched, it proves that our bodies are resilient and capable of shielding and repairing," Bruno says in a provided statement. "The imperfections of the skin are something to be celebrated, as they reveal the skin's function as a living barrier and record of life experiences."
The exhibit will run through Thursday, August 24, at Create Art 4 Good (Hungerford Building, Suite 201, Door 5, 1115 East Main Street). For more information, visit createart4good.org or call 210-3161.
