The exhibit’s description on the Bromfield Gallery’s website:
“An installation on bathroom tiles where drawings make visceral vignettes, showing moments ranging from giving birth to getting booked. A shape-shifting protagonist emerges from the tiles. She morphs in time and race and limps along at odds with expectations but at one with viscera.
“‘Here I Sit, Brokenhearted’ is about the ill fit of the body and how our most private moments can play out in the public sphere.”
The gallery, at 450 Harrison Ave., is open Wednesday-Saturday, noon to 5 p.m.
Payne, a mother of two daughters, teaches drawing at the Arlington Center for the Arts.
