Description:
Working as an artist, I started to think about the materials I work with. I did not want to buy and use materials that directly or indirectly harm the environment. Working with found objects, I sort of clean the planet and transform waste into beauty. Newspaper (paper) is a natural product that will be further recycled for reuse. But before that, there will be a long process of collection, transportation, processing, which leads to high consumption and emission of harmful substances. I collect old newspapers in my city on my own and use them to create my works. Thinking about an environment-friendly approach, I wanted to translate this into something positive for people. Get their attention and change their minds about the usage of waste in art. So the very process of ‘translating’ a newspaper into an art object (covering the surface) suggested to me the decision to work with pure colour. I use acrylic wall paints, which does not lead to additional consumption of special paints for artists. Thus it turns out ecological recycling of waste into objects of art which rhetorically mean everything can be art and beautiful - the question is how you approach it.
