Barbara Eisenstein – Life Needs Water, Clean Water = Healthy Life

“Life Needs Water, Clean Water = Healthy Life”

Barbara Eisenstein – Bethesda, Maryland

 

Artist’s Statement:
Life needs water. Healthy life needs clean water.  Six hundred sixty-three million people on Earth do not have access to clean water–for drinking, food preparation, bathing, washing–and the consequences are disastrous: Every 90 seconds a child dies from the effects of drinking unclean water. The absence of convenient sources of water also impedes progress. Worldwide, each day, women and children spend a collective 125 million hours traveling back and forth from their homes to collect water–time that could be spent in more positive ways, teaching, learning, earning.

The steps required for the solution are not complex: Pumps, pipes, filtration, and careful disposal of waste water bring health and improved productivity. How can we maximize our efforts to give the world clean water?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Artist’s Biography:
Images from nature and from the photos I take provide the inspiration for my quilts. The lens of my imagination transfers these images to fabric, using raw-edge applique, hand and machine stitching, collage, layering, and blended design elements. Hand-dyed fabrics are embellished with ornamental stitching and applied yarns.
