Maria Arango Las Vegas, Nevada USA ”Waterbearers”
Reduction print, cherry block, Moulin du Gue paper, oil based inks blue mixes rainbow roll and black. ”Waterbearers” belong to my imaginary mythical "desert dwellers" series. They live in the mountains surrounding the desert. Through their dedicated work in inhospitable terrain, they descend to the scant springs and bleak intermittent water-holes to rescue every drop of water that falls on those rare spring storms. The water is saved and poured during droughts, giving life to the hardy desert life below. Although never seen, they leave clear paths ascending escarpments to the birth of the springs and carve scars on the cliffs when pouring the recycling waters.
