A Journey Towards Sustainable Artworks
My artwork is undergoing a metamorphosis.
My earlier images were different in technique and conception.
The journey towards a simpler, more sustainable lifestyle is reflected in my new images which I plan to develop further next year.
The adjacent work is painted using clay paint with non toxic pigment on a recycled dartboard. The dartboard needed to be stripped down to create surfaces on which I could work.
The details below show the richness and texture of the clay paint.
The pigments used in this paint are non toxic so a big plus for the environment.
Also no VOC's are off gassed which as a breast cancer survivor I have learned is an important consideration in creating sustainable environments.
The outside of the dartboard uses texture and color to reflect the soil .
Words were floated through words which reflect my new understanding of our precious earth.
