Gifts of Art presents Beauty Meets My Mess: Mixed Media Collage
Re Kielar was born in Chicago’s little Italy neighborhood with her grandparents upstairs and aunt and uncle across the courtyard. Her world was very Italian, and when she walked outside, she felt like she was leaving one country and entering another. Ever since she was a child, she has loved paint and texture and seen beauty in the most unlikely places. Her artwork expresses human emotion through drawing in ink with rough papers, old book pages, metal embellishments and natural objects. Each abstract collage is coupled with her poetry, so each piece is a walk into her soul. She hopes that by sharing that which is broken, we can find healing spaces that knit our hearts together.
