Hello Colour Filers 🐙🌺🦊🦁🐥🐸🍀🦋👕👾☂️
As I first mentioned back in March, I’ve been a fan of art made from discarded plastic for some time but I’ve only just learned that ‘junk art’ (or ‘trash art’) is a recognised artistic movement (junk art was first coined as a phrase in the 1960s). I love the many and varied ways that people put plastic trash to good use in the name of art, such the large-scale reclaimed plastic sculptures by @b0rdalo_ii and @mcphersonsteve‘sintricate and impressively ordered pictures. I’ve a not-so-secret desire to visit his studio and admire his ‘plastic treasures filing system’. I suspect it might make me very happy in a ‘Monica from Friends’ kind of way. I wonder if he has a favourite found object? I do: take a closer look at my trash art in today’s pic and try to guess which find makes me the happiest? Who needs diamonds when you’ve got sea treasure, huh?
