"I was just horrified when I heard about the people in Flint. It is completely unacceptable and those at fault need to be held accountable with some serious repercussions. That simply should not be happening in this day and age. Period. It is extremely important for me as an artist to use my platform and artwork to help raise awareness for these issues. I wouldn’t say I’m a political artist, but to be able to use certain themes within my work that have parallels with our lives and be able to inspire a positive response is key. This painting is definitely an evolution on the water concept I have been putting into some pieces lately, water flowing out of chests, characters submerged in water, etc. I painted this piece as a continued exploration with my fascination with water. Water as a cleanser, water as a source of life, water as a protector. I see her as a water deity and a helpful soul." - Tara McPherson
