Through the eye of the needle – An exhibition by Stefan Spiteri

8 February | 9:00 am - 29 February | 7:00 pm

Through the eye of the needle

An exhibition by Stefan Spiteri

‘THROUGH THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE’ presents Stefan Spiteri’s latest reckoning with the depth which canvas has to be explored. This exhibition is a spiritual reckoning within a world that often stops at edifice. The artist uses the needle to show there is more depth to a surface than what initially appears – that no element can avoid fraying and that a return to mending is the only way.

The exhibition will feature Stefan Spiteri’s latest work, as well as an installation of works by the artist’s mother Speranza Spiteri.
