CULTURA-DE-COLOR

This is the triptych I entered for Baterbys exhibition.  Below  is a description of its meaning and how this art work relates to the Hispanic Culture.

Da Gracias Por Agua

“Da Gracias Por Agua” 22″ high by 47″ wide by 6″ deep

My Triptych “Da Gracias Por Agua.” (Give Thanks for Water) reveres the essential element: Water.

The first relief quotes several lines from Jorge Argueta’s poem “El Agua:” “El Agua Es Sagrada” (Water is Sacred) “Es La Sangre De La Madre Tierra.” (It is the Blood of Mother Earth.)

“Los Cuatro Elementos,” the center sculpture features the four element covers floated above concave wells: Earth (Tierra), Air (Aire), Water (Agua) and Fire (Fuego.)

Atl, the Aztec symbol for water, is centered in the starburst design of the third piece. “El Agua Es Una Bendición” (Water is a Blessing) and “Da Gracias Por Agua” (Give Thanks for Water) are inscribed in Spanish around the water fount. Masaru Emoto, author of “The True Power of Water,” influenced my message of Water as a Blessing.
