Statement

Fawn Atencio is an artist based in Colorado, whose recent work concerns water behavior, movement, scarcity, and shortage. During a year long sabbatical to Egypt, Morocco, India, China, Macau, Hong Kong, Spain, Gibraltar, and Thailand, she researched and recorded how populations interface with water. Teaching intermittently while raising a family, she served as a guest artist at the University of Colorado, Denver University, and Plymouth State University, New Hampshire (forthcoming). She exhibits her work throughout the United States and abroad, has work in private and public collections, organizes numerous printmaking portfolio exchanges, and will have a solo show, Sea Change opening at Minot State University in North Dakota, in 2017. She is part of a group exhibit and symposium on art meets science: Forecasting: Climate Change and Water Impact, at the Museum of the White Mountains in New Hampshire this winter.
