About The Artwork

Year: 2022 Style: public art Description: "I am Mother Nature, having willingly offered you my beauty and riches, but human interactions have scarred me. Out of fear for further damage, my hands cover my eyes as I rest in Child's pose. Occasionally I peak and find hope and balance in recycle and bicycle but all too quickly treble from yet another drill and spill. My soul longs to be at peace, ringed by champions of conservation and preservation of my grandeur, but the circle of my protectors is never complete. They're forced to shout out of desperation and yet I'm increasingly plagued by heat, erosion, extreme forest fires, receding glaciers, rising sea levels, and drought." Need Help? Contact

Tamara Murray

Tamara Murray is a Virginia-based artist originally hailing from the Midwest. She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1989. She has lived in Virginia for the past 30 years, and for over 25 of those years, her works have been publicly and privately collected.

As a small child, Tamara was shy and introspective. She relied on her imagination to navigate the world. She was an astute observer of her surroundings. Tamara draws inspiration from what is missing. She looks for the hidden dimension - what is missing behind a door or a face, what is missing from an ordinary perspective. She employs cropping and an unexpected use of color to guide the viewer into a more intimate relationship with the image.
