“Plastic Fantastic” – Annabelle Collett
Plastic in all its forms produces enormous amounts of waste from use in our every day lives. Annabelle Collett uses recycled ‘trash’ to fashion a vast array of artworks from all types of plastics for this exhibition.
She utilises colourful discarded materials from domestic items such as plastic lids, old children’s toys, broken jewellery pieces and dumped containers and implements to make bold and vibrant statements highlighting the aesthetics of waste.
In the style of found object assemblage, she creates sculptures, installations and wall pieces using many methods and processes that link art, craft and design.
This is a major solo exhibition being a huge body of work of over 80 pieces from a prominent South Australian artist. It will be opened on Saturday 28th at 2pm by Tony Kearney, designer & plastics’ collector (as seen on The Collectors, ABC TV).
