Green Room

Colorado artist Bonnie Lebesch weaves personal, historical, and contemporary gun stories into hand-stitched objects. The idea for this project stemmed from her father’s comparison between their contrary relationships to guns and the arts. Reproduced life-sized, the work is a prayerful meditation, similar to reciting mantras or using rosary or prayer beads. This series embodies the sacredness of ritual work through repetition, promise, and loving devotion towards the healing of deep, old wounds.

As Louise Bourgeois stated, “The needle is used to repair damage. It‘s a claim to forgiveness.”
