They Needed A House
After twenty years of watching the sunrises over the cypress outside of her bathroom window, the land Babette knew and loved was cleared to build a house. She found herself walking the property and picking up objects in the dirt. Using these objects to build this sculpture, was a way of coping with the change. The words that kept coming into her mind was that “they needed a house.” The woods disappeared not only for her but the woodpeckers, raccoons among many others that lived among the trees; impermanence is a continuous theme of the artist.
