NR Project is excited to announce Scars, a charity exhibition of 25 artworks by jbecerra dealing with the threat of international terrorism in the 21st century.

About

Each artwork is based on a section of Khalil Gibran’s 1923 poem, The Prophet, a series of meditations on a wide-range of topics from everyday life. The poem ultimately constructs humanity as a connected web, where individuals become complete through their interactions with other people. jbecerra chose The Prophet as inspiration for this sensitive topic to express the communal mourning communities experience after an attack, memorialise victims, and to reflect on the interdependence between one human life and all others. The walls in NR’s space will be black for the event in order to create a contemplative space for viewers to think about the issues in jbecerra’s works. jbecerra himself will be present in the gallery, completing the final two works in the exhibition.​

The event is sponsored by fellow artist, philanthropist and dear friend of the artist, Gary Jabara, who is founder and chair of the Jabara Family Foundation.​

Proceeds will go to the UK Solidarity Fund, operated by the British Red Cross.
