Check out ‘Beauty Meets My Mess’ media collage at Rogel Cancer Center
Re Kielar was born in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood with her grandparents upstairs and aunt and uncle across the courtyard. Her world was heavily influenced by Italian culture, and when she walked outside, she felt like she was leaving one country and entering another.
Ever since she was a child, she has loved paint and texture and seen beauty in the most unlikely places. Her artwork expresses human emotion through drawing in ink with rough papers, old book pages, metal embellishments and natural objects. Each abstract collage is coupled with her poetry, so each piece is a walk into her soul. She hopes that by sharing that which is broken, individuals can find healing spaces that knit their hearts together.
Take a look at her unique work, currently on display at Michigan Medicine:
