Delfina Piretti, long time EXA faculty is celebrating her first solo art exhibition at San Francisco Zen Center.

RECEPTION FRIDAY JULY 12, 7-9PM

Delfina's art work includes a range of materials from mixed media oil paintings to interactive sculpture.This particular body of work draws on time spent in the Mojave desert, dharma talks and her healing work as an expressive arts psychotherapist.
In the art lounge you will meet a life size sculpture: Nonna Sin Eater, mythological figure who is half Italian grandmother, half dolphin. She invites the viewer to rid themselves of their sins by writing them on rice noodles and feeding them to her (yes-putting them into her mouth!) To her it's a gourmet food. Sin eater is another word for a shaman, a wounded healer and someone who transmutes negative energies. This work explores the shadow aspects of the unconscious mind, our weaknesses and shortcomings, and provokes the viewer's thoughts and emotions to the word "sin" in a playful way.

For more information, visit Studio Delfina or have a look at a recent blog post from Sangha News: Go Ahead, Feed the Sculpture.
