Her work Coot Bay Pond refers to the landscape and ecosystems threatened by the uncontrolled expansion of cities in states like Florida where the natural surface of the land is no longer as wild and wide as the blue sky.
It is an artistic analysis that adds a critical look at the risks of demographic increase in different aspects of our lives, providing a review of the collapse of natural systems, environmental degradation, inequality, displacement, violation of rights of native communities among other issues that concern the Floridian territory where she draws inspiration and emotional reflections.
Basile, through engraving, creates extensions of her gaze, tacitly narrates facts linked to the documentary traction of the landscape and the extension of sustainability as a concern for her environment and life.
