About the Artist:
Brittany Waters grew up in Northern California where she stayed to get her AA in art from Sierra college in Rocklin California. After receiving her AA she transferred to California State University, Long Beach. Brittany Waters is majoring in ceramics and is planning to graduate with a BFA. The exhibit #MoreThanASandbox is Waters’ senior show as she is currently a senior here at CSULB.
In the exhibit #MoreThanASandbox, Brittany Waters explored many different mediums. These mediums include; ceramics, projection, and photography but an emphasis in ceramics. The exhibit contained 118 ceramic turtles that Waters personally hand made, one by one.
Waters discussed how her work has a big inspiration from nature. She even stayed true to how many eggs a sea turtle would lay. She wanted to represent the uniqueness of the animal. By representing this animal through art she brings an even more unique quality to the animal, nature, and art.
I really enjoyed this exhibit. I admire all the hard work that was put into making each individual turtle. I have always been fascinated with sea turtles and this exhibit made it feel like they were really there. I also really enjoyed how the it was set up to look like an actual beach. It had a cool atmosphere and I enjoyed pretending to lounge around on the beach with my friends.
