About Tricia Talle
Tricia Talle is an artist, educator, farmer and activist. She enjoys exploring many mediums, so her work is not often identifiable. Her deep love of nature is a common theme in her work. Believing that water is “the lifeblood of the planet", it remains a strong inspiration for much of her art-making. As a participant in the Art Hotel 916 project, Talle took on the task of educating the public to the dangers of hydraulic fracturing. She floated clear acetate strips in a bathtub of tainted water, penned with the myriad of toxic chemicals, injected and dangerously close to drinking water by “Frackers”. She drew a US map, marking the million plus existing wells, state by state, along with the proposed future wells.
