I have been working on transparent materials for over 20 years, but I stopped 10 years ago - as an ecological artist, I didn’t want to use plastic.
5 years ago I discovered a film made of starches, (PLA), and resurrected my love of light shining through the work on to a shiny white background, which I find beautiful. Together with beauty in this work is a big message. We are being crippled by plastic.
I wanted to acknowledge the catastrophe of plastic, but give joy and hope through my work. I am excited to at last find a way of presenting this new work which I can guarantee is not being done by anyone else.
I am a colourist, a study of natural colours. Together with showing work on this PLA film, I will also be showing works on canvas, which also include PLA.
