Lori Zimmerman: Mending at Dortort Center for Creativity in the Arts at UCLA Hillel


  • Hillel at UCLA 574 HILGARD AVE. LOS ANGELES. CA. 90024 (map)

Lori Zimmerman is an artist working in the Los Angeles.  Her work explores the beauty inherent in aging; our nature impulse to mend both our lives and our world; and the subtle coloring of flora and nature’s expert patterning.  

Lori's Artist Statement, " We spend a significant amount of time repairing, stitching, mending the skinned knee, the rent cloth, the aging muscles; clarifying misunderstandings, soothing the broken heart, healing the hurt from misplaced trust; and fighting injustices doled out in the larger world.  With whatever skills we’ve accumulated over the years we take needle and thread, words and actions, alone and in community we attempt to find wholeness, regain functionality, work towards a sense of fairness and justice.  We strive to mend ourselves, heal our relationships and repair our society.   Nothing stays the same.  Nothing defies decay.  One stitch, one thought, one action at a time, repeated over and over, time and again, finding wholeness in rhythm, pattern and melody.”
