MFA: Sydney Webb By the Sweat of Our Brow

As artists we don’t often consider how our work may impact our environment.  Increasingly though, artists are becoming aware of more sustainable processes and methods of making. Artist Sydney Webb combines traditional print and drawing processes with environmental material to engage people in conversations about nature and ecology. Her small sculptures constructed of handmade cotton paper are injected with life, literally.  Contained inside each delicate form are several seeds meant to germinate and eventually burst forth, becoming part of the work.  While on exhibit the seeds will continue to grow and eventually be planted in various sites.

Sydney Webb earned her BFA in Printmaking in 2010 from Herron School of Art and Design and is currently an MFA Candidate at the University of Texas at Arlington. This is Sydney’s first solo exhibition in Texas.
