Water permeates and shapes everything it touches. It carves mountains into sand and swells seeds to fruition. It grows forests and destroys cities. It fills our bodies, builds our blood and bathes our cells. Nothing is as simultaneously ordinary and miraculous as water.
Barbara De Pirro’s observations of nature have triggered a profound admiration for its brilliance and resilience while at the same time a deep concern for its fragility and vulnerability. She creates environmental sculpture and installation art. With each project De Pirro strives to create a sense of wonder; enticing the viewer to turn that vision outwards into the natural world, nurturing a sense of appreciation and understanding of that interconnection, ultimately encouraging the protection of our most precious resource.
