Exhibiting:

"All That's Degraded & All That Won't Degrade" 

The Venus of Willendorf (Wildfire) - oil on canvas and Cabinet of Curiosities - a mixed media paper collage with plastic straws and a recycled wooden frame.

"All that's degraded & all that won't degrade" is a twist on the non-degradable plastic pollution theme, where  I am putting the plastic straw in parallel with the remains of the tree trunks left behind on a de-forested, burnt out area of the jungle, pointing out the complexity of our impact on this word. I am also exploring the wider meaning of the expression "degrade" in terms of art forms and the value-system we have created around artworks (without putting a shark in formaldehyde - and not just because I can't afford it  ;), and  how it has changed over the years.
