Beautifully Broken - The Healing Power of Art , an international online solo exhibition of mixed media and decorative arts by Luz Helena Thompson opens on August 01 and will continue through August 31, 2023.

Luz Helena Thompson's work is intended to unite the process of self-reflection with a tangible expression of creativity through imagery, thus appealing to one or more of our senses. The use of broken mirrors is to demonstrate the shattering of internal emotions that express a change and rebuilding of self-identity. Each of us possess an internal belief system about ourselves and though our worlds may have been shattered by devastation, Thompson believes that we can always rebuild and repair. The act of creating something beautiful from the most broken parts of ourselves is essentially the road we pave on the journey toward healing. The only guarantee we have in life is the inevitability of change and through her artworks she attempts to redefine the outcome of being, beautifully broken.
