Water: What Lies Beneath Water is a vital resource to life on our planet, all plants and animals must have water to survive. It connects us as a society and also can be a boundary. Water can be destructive as it is healing. Rivers, canals, lakes, and oceans offer passage and a way to transport goods and people, and safe use can be an asset, as misuse and contamination can bring out dire consequences.
And while we see there is beauty and romanticism in the view of open water, waves and the flow of a brook or stream, it can also be something to fear, as water can hold a great power and be the force of devastation- in its absence and in its great abundance. It is our heritage, given to us from generations before; as it is as a legacy to pass to the next generation. Our actions now can develop into dire consequences or positive outcomes for the future.
Artists selected for "Water: What Lies Beneath" investigate our relationship with water. These artists uncover the results and and the impact we have on the environment, document how our oceans and local water sources are changing and the meditative beauty of water.
