Uni Eco Project

I decided for Eco project in the beginning of my second year. I started off with ecology/environmental art and went too wide with my research and art.
I started off with ecology/environmental art and went too wide with my research and art. I wanted to do something different from my usual art. My tutor suggested to look up artists like Terry Setch. So, I did. I fell in love with Setch’s work. My two pieces were inspired by his work. I called them Disaster I and II. In these I was showing what can happen with our land, Earth if we will not be serious with recycling. Plastic waste is an ongoing issue we are dealing with daily.
In Disaster I and II I used melted plastic, encaustic wax, and paint. I wanted these pieces to be ‘raw’ and ugly, just like the surroundings if we will not appreciate the beauty of our nature.
