In our contemporary world, the pressing issues of environmental degradation, material consumerism, and waste have taken center stage. We live in a world where plastic waste inundates our oceans and degrades our planet. My artistic journey has been shaped by a profound concern for the environment and centers on addressing these issues through a dramatic visual narrative that speaks to the global tragedy of consumer culture and its repercussions on our planet.
My artistic practice, rooted in repurposing of discarded materials into ceramic art, is a response to this crisis. Through my work, I aim to create a dialog about consumerism, waste, and the pressing need for sustainable practices. By transforming trash into cast ceramic sculptures and functional pieces, I seek to emphasize the permanence of our disposable mentality and the urgency of changing our relationship with the planet. This transformation not only highlights the permanence of our overflowing landfills but also invites viewers to reflect on their own relationship with disposable objects.
