Harriet Feigenbaum
NY, NY
Neighborhood: Coney Island



ARTIST STATEMENT: To Coney Island, where I lived as a child. The motivation behind my return to the waterfront began in 1991 when I started to work with fossil-laden Jurassic stone from the Gulf of Mexico, limestone beds that had actually been under water. It was a daily reminder of the fragility of ocean life. Now, environmental abuse and global warming have created a sense of urgency. I confront it in my own way with one work at a time.
