I feel an enormous responsibility to use my creativity to explore ways in which I can highlight the impact that plastic has upon our lives, whilst raising awareness by creating art out of the detritus I find when walking or that I rescue from peoples rubbish bins (with permission and often before it reaches their bin).
Bowline Rope is on display in a micro exhibition called Coast, that has been curated by David Cass, Joseph Calleja and also feature the late, Robert Callender. The main exhibition at An Talla Solais in Ullapool, is a combination of enthusiasm for the found object, coupled with a sense of responsibility to the environment. Works by Cass and Calleja can be seen alongside seminal pieces by artist Robert Callender in As Coastline is to Ocean.
Bowline Rope and Seaweed are both made using discarded plastic bags.
