EDITION: Maya Lin, Seven Square Inches of Water
Maya Lin’s work exudes a profound respect and love for the natural environment. Her interest in landscape has led to works influenced by topographies and geographic phenomena, finding inspiration from rock formations, ice floes, water patterns, solar eclipses, and aerial views of the earth. Lin’s work asks the viewer to reconsider nature and the environment at a time when it is crucial to do so.
A committed environmentalist, Ms. Lin is working on her final memorial, What is Missing?, a multi-sited artwork that raises awareness about the current crisis surrounding biodiversity and habitat loss.
The profits of this artwork will benefit the Storm King Art Center to help with maintenance and upkeep of the Storm King Wavefield which is the inspiration for this editioned sculpture.
