Bishop Feehan Art Club Artist Statement:
The theme “Elemental” brought to mind a juxtaposition of the industrial and wasteful presence of mankind, to the power of nature. From behind, an eerie red glow creates a bleak silhouette against a crumbling cityscape. Underneath, an inverted landscape of a mountain and waterfall pops with bright colors. The vines coming out of the wall and traveling from the bottom mountain scene into the cityscape above shows nature healing and overcoming the negative effects of humanity. We had discussions about climate change and how we, as humans, are affecting the Earth in the long term whether we feel the effects ourselves or not. Our sculpture was constructed of mostly recycled or found materials in keeping with the idea of human overconsumption and the need for us to be more conscious of our environment and the Earth as a whole.
