Title of Art Piece: Mother Desperate
Student/Artist’s Name: Brody Schuyler
School: Eagle River High School
Artist Statement: Say hello to Mother Nature. She may not look like the green goddess woman you think of when you hear Mother Nature. That’s because she is my own modern interpretation of Mother Nature; dark, twisted, and covered in an abstract waste that we have created. Weighing her down and causing her sorrow. She is made completely out of newspapers, tape, and food coloring. Some may look at this and feel disturbed, and maybe they should. Let it be a reflection. To me, she is still a beautiful piece of art, as well as a strong message. This is my Mother Nature; desperate.
