The Irish landscape has dramatically transformed in the past 100 years since the widespread availability of plastics. This throwaway, invincible material now litters the Irish shores which was once so idealistic and had inspired the painter Paul Henry in his depiction of this sublime landscape.
These plastics have become a thing of modernity, which now holds permeance in Irish landscape. The worn, twisted plastic itself has a morphic element to it, which reflected the landscape itself, describing a changing throwaway society. The repurposing of these altered plastics, now redundant of their original use, conjures a new and almost natural sense of beauty for the artist, creating a reclaimed context for these objects. The process itself involves the layering of acrylic mediums and the incorporation of found plastics, used to describe an evolving, contemporary landscape.
