Trash: The Art of Recycle
“The natural world has inspired people since the beginning of time, primarily through its beauty and power. However, in the past one hundred years, man’s pursuit of manufacturing for mass consumerism has threatened the planet, with waste from disposable goods now a top environmental and political priority.
As a disposable society, it is easier to throw things out than to fix them. Recycling is a positive way to offset the damage. My work focuses on the art of reuse, renewal and recycling to reinforce this message. Constructing art from discarded metal materials speaks out on the negative impact humans have left on the environment, while educating and creating awareness on the need to recycle debris and reduce pollution.”
