Patricia Zalisko’s mixed media collages capture the intimate process of healing and understanding after a time of crisis.
For Life to Return is a profound visual diary, which explores the idea of creating beauty from destruction. Zalisko pairs each work in this spotlight exhibition with an accompanying haiku, emphasizing man’s relationship with nature through themes of survival, displacement, and renewal.
