This chair is part of a series of chairs that I restored for my senior exhibition art show while studying at Redeemer University College. I found this chair outside someone’s home, abandoned for garbage day. As I took it home and began stripping it, I discovered that restoring old furniture is richly redemptive and gives an illustration about beauty in brokenness. Like an old chair, God saves us from being garbage and restores us. The painting on the front of this chair is titled “Share”—a virtue I believe will transform community.
