Art Description

Sculpture: Plastic, Environmental, Found Objects on Canvas.

10 repurposed plastic bottles made into a unique sculpture!
A unique sculpture in a perspex box inspired by the bleached out coral reefs.

Coral reefs are the largest living structures, which are are now facing the biggest threat due to global warming and climate change. And is giving out their call for survival. The corals are in endosymbiotic relationship with the algae which supply energy for them. But these algae is being killed by the temperature raise in ocean water. The coral reef then starve and glow in 3 different fluorescent colors. and final bleaches out. My latest series of artworks reflects this phenomenon ..

I decided to work with the theme oceanlife, since they are most affected due to plastic pollution. In each of my works, the texture is individually cut and painted from discarded plastic bottles.
