Few would describe migraines as “beautiful,” but to see Jane Wunrow’s artwork, one might experience them that way. A graduate of the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, Wunrow has suffered from classic migraines for almost two decades. She uses pen and ink, powdered graphite, powdered charcoal, gouache, and collage to create large-scale visual representations of the aura, disorientation, and dizziness that accompany her unpredictable bilateral headaches. Big slashes of black and silver cut across circular formations in a piece called Disturbance, while I Make My Bed in the Darkness resembles a planetary formation, complete with thin rings around it and a bright yellow blaze at its center. Wunrow, who considers her migraines an “opportunity” to perceive the world anew, shares a series of creative manifestations of this debilitating ailment in “Seeing Voices,” her first solo exhibition at Gamut Gallery. There will be an artist’s talk at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 3.
