Description:

In reaction to a recent artist residency in Venice, Italy, Steinbach shares with the Taos community a series of monoprints that offer a meditation on time, beauty, fragility, danger, and the resiliency of imagination. In Steinbach’s statement, she explains, “It’s become a cliché to mourn for Venice in its beautiful decrepitude.  But this ancient improbable city, floating on sandbars and wooden stakes, is more besieged than at any time in its history.  Climate change is causing rising seas, and each day cruise ship behemoths disgorge thousands of tourists onto the canals and into the campos.”
