About this exhibit-
Water Defined: Water, H20, is a chemical substance that covers over 70 percent of the Earth’s surface. It exists in gaseous, solid and liquid forms. Without water, no life exits. These facts identify the nature of water, but they only begin the definition. In this exhibit, Brugos investigates the meanings of water in a textural way using handmade paper, paint, batik scraps and found objects. Snowflake, glacier, ripple, wave, rain, waterfall, cloud, geyser will all be explored. A book, provided by the artist, will be on hand so that viewers can define water in their own way—with words or a sketch.
