Very pleased to have had this piece selected by the jury for the upcoming exhibit. Click on image to see photos by Chris Jordan that inspired this work.
Carved and painted in the style of “naive” folk art to reflect how willfully naive people are when it comes to our impact on the environment.
Once opened, a drawer full of plastic is revealed. This trash was collected in just one hour at a beach near my house.
Many seabirds die from ingesting plastic, mistaking it for food. They often feed it to their young who also perish as it fails to pass through their digestive system.
