A Constant Struggle for Reciprocity 2022: Mary Martin
On view through 2022
Mattress Factory
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

A series of ceremonial vessels act as metaphors for reciprocity. Hands reference the cultural exchange and spiritual transmission from mother to son. Each cup holds space to give and to receive. A table is set to exchange ideas and to calm the soul. A double-spouted vessel serves with abundance. Bowls are the Round Dreams that map the maternal journey of the Seeker. Life is a balance between holding on and letting go.

“A Constant Struggle for Reciprocity 2022” is part of the group exhibition “SHRINE.” The show is on view through December 30, 2022.
