Artist Statement of Deanna PindellDeanna Pindell`s Personal Statement
I fuse these themes in site-specific public art, gallery installations, and sculptures.? My most recent works focus on environmental remediation (such as cleansing polluted water, or nurturing native plantings).
As I consider the creation of a site-specific public work, I seek to integrate science, social culture, the ecology of flora and fauna, history and visual poetry.? Gallery installations offer the opportunity to explore the complexity of environmental issues, confronting ethical decisions, practical challenges, and mortal realities.? The spaces which I create are meditative and thought-provoking.
Beeswax, straw, clay, paper ? native plants, trees, water ? steel, resins, plastics, rubber:? I make use of many varied materials.? Each is chosen for a specific sculpture, to express specific meanings and? symbolism, as well as for the tactile, or translucent, or structural qualities.
