Loretta Bebeau

Loretta Bebeau, who has a hearing impairment, examines communication through her artwork. She often represents her disability through the letter pairings within the alphabet and popular letter-based games such as tic-tac-toe. The scrambled letters can also refer to memory, realization, and defiance. Builder’s materials such as sheetrock and gypsum are the stuff of her work. The materials are reused, humble, and marginal to our daily life, but nonetheless important.
