Art Description

Collage: Plastic on Cardboard.

There was a region on the Lunar farside that was briefly misidentified as a mare and named Mare Desiderii (Sea of Desire). It is no longer recognized.

Collaged unaltered Marine plastic objects found on the UK coast, 1994-2016.

I have been working with marine plastic collected from Kent beaches for over 15 years, the pieces are washed and sorted before being used for creating collages. I am colourblind and this introduces tonal discrepancies in to the colour separation in many of my works.

As with all artwork this image should be kept out of direct sunlight, environments of high moisture content, and extremes of temperatures.
