Current Exhibits - Aruna Papp

Jun 26, 2023 - Oct 31, 2023

For over three decades I worked with women who were victims of domestic violence. Some of these women were killed. Over time, their faces began to fade in my memory, so to preserve their memories and calm the turmoil in my brain I started to make dolls using fabric, a needle, and threads. At first, the faces of the dolls came out incredibly sad or chaotic looking, but now they have begun to smile. I follow no pattern so I never know what facial expression each doll will exhibit.

I would like very much to share some of these dolls with my community.
