Escopis – International Christmas Card

Bobbi MastrangeloBOBBI MASTRANGELO’S ARTIST STATEMENT
For “The Street Was Paved in Gold”

Since 1979, I have focused on the theme of manhole and water covers, rendering them in prints, cast paper, sculpture relief, installations and fiber art.
Through research and contact with utilities I have learned a great deal about the purposes for the different covers. In various sizes, they provide access to such underground utilities as electricity, gas, telephone and water.

And let’s not forget about storm drains and sewers. What goes into our storm drains and sewers is a concern, because what ever goes down into the earth, eventually comes up and around as part of the water and weather cycle. In recent years the reuse of water or recycled water has also become an environmental issue.
Of all the resources that have iron covers to access them, water is our most vital. We cannot live with out water. When I created two fiber art pieces on the theme of “The Street Were Paved in Gold,” I incorporated a water valve cover in one and a reuse valve cover in the other.

Ecopsis

The Swiss Firm Ecopsis discovered my Grate works on line and contacted me. “Ecopsis” means “vision of the habitat” in Greek. Ecopsis is an international consulting firm that specializes in the development of challenging sanitation projects.The Strees Was Paved in Gold

They requested permission to use my image “The Street Was Paved in Gold” for their International Christmas Card.
