The Memory of Water
“In my generation, we grew up thinking the ocean was the ultimate. Water was limitless in its ability to absorb, infinite in its ability to support life. How childish this seems now. Through video projection, sculpture, installation, sound and now with these reliefs and collages began in 2017, I am trying to create art meant to help us feel and think twice.
The list of natural disasters affecting water is sobering. All the gallons of oil, all the heavy metals. Reconciling the feelings these events produce in me with my direct experience of the beautiful places I have been a struggle. This work expresses my sorrow for the water. It is the voice I would give the water if it could communicate the distress.
The choice of materials, colors, and shapes combine with energy that transforms. I hope the art helps us remember the facts and perhaps change our behaviors.”
-Bebe Beard January 2019
