Dead or Alive? The Peril of Plastic

(2018)


Inspired and moved by the BBC natural history series Blue Planet II...


the artist poses the question,


"Are these beautiful creatures painted against a white background still alive or, does the white represent the cold, clinical surface on which they have been placed once removed from our oceans, suffocated or strangled by man-made and discarded plastic?"


Medium - iPad paintings output as archival inks, some with acrylic embellishment


*more works in progress... coming soon
