Collected ocean plastics in efforts to heal the sea & reclaim its natural state.
These works are made from plastic pieces which are harmful and dangerous to the marine animals who ingest and become entangled. This does not exclude humans. We are also susceptible to the ingestion of plastic via the trickle down effect, and can become entangled in rogue ghost nets as well.
Marine Animals mistake the plastic bits as food, eat, become falsely full, and die of malnutrition and or toxicity. With objects not belonging in the ocean such as nets left behind from fishing vessels, marine life of all kinds can and do become bycatch in the entrapment of ghost nets.
All plastics have been collected from the ocean and then reshaped into sculpture, or sewn onto canvas painted to simulate an oceanic scene. Hover over images below to read more about them.
Adrift, Ghost Net Basket Sculpture $400
Resembling a rocky coastline strewn with turquoise anemone adrift is a balancing reminder of our plastic debris riddled sea. Spending some of its life as a ghost net, this once well intended tool had transformed into a trap for marine life. Here it has been given a new purpose where it will no longer harm and serve as salty a testament of truth.
