On Wings of Prayer

Laurie Wohl's interfaith exhibit "On Wings of Prayer" travels to First Presbyterian Church, Durham, NC. This exhibit, consisting of 19 Unweavings® fiber art pieces, conveys spiritual narratives through form, color, texture, and calligraphy. 

The words within each piece and the unwoven form that suggests these words serve as a visual midrash of various Biblical texts. The unwoven spaces form symbolic shapes - wings, ladders prayer shawls, veils, trees, falling waters, and the sacred architecture of windows, domes, and gates. The narrative is enhanced by Wohl's own distinctive iconography, indicating guardians,messengers, journeying and praying figures, processional figures.

Exhibit on view till May 28th, 2012.
