This exhibition focuses on the many different ways in which pain is expressed and understood, both in art and in the world around us. A dictionary definition will tell you that pain is "physical suffering or distress, as due to injury, illness, etc."; "a distressing sensation in a particular part of the body"; or "mental or emotional suffering or torment". The pieces I have selected for this exhibit each display a different understanding of what it is to experience pain, including the counter-piece. It is my goal that this exhibition open the eyes of the viewers to the many forms of pain in the world around them.
