PLASTICITY (Series: STREAMS)
STREAMS is a series from a recent body of work titled PLASTICITY. The images are striking, colourful and made entirely using recycled materials, demonstrating the scope of what’s possible with what we already have. My process is authentic and original, although subtle enough to entice the viewer.
Bags and bags of plastic, that is impossible to recycle, have accumulated in my studio over the last 6 months. I carefully select different pieces, working them together to build up the composition whilst lighting them with mostly gridded lights using different coloured gels to achieve the desired mood.
Although all the work is made from collaging and lighting different forms of plastic, it is concerned with water and our relationship to it as humans. Surely the problems we have providing the population of this world with enough clean fresh drinking water should be as easy as shooting fish in a barrel, no?
