Summative Assessment

Artist Statement

How does sustainability affect our surroundings and how does it affect our lives? Are we living every day in ways which are creating positive or negative effects on the environment we live in? Is this something we could be taking more seriously or is this something we choose to ignore instead of facing the problem at hand? Are we really educated on what’s going wrong in the environmental world or is this something that is kept from us? The focus of my work is to spread awareness about environmental harm through the power of art. Using mixed media collage techniques, I hope my work can give people a real glimpse into what we aren’t always shown in the newspapers. I think art has the power to speak to people, in a way in which we are unable to speak to each other and can send an extremely powerful message. Sustainability is something that is very close to my heart and sending powerful messages around this subject has become very important to me.

How does sustainability affect our surroundings and how does it affect our lives? Are we living every day in ways which are creating a positive or negative effect on sustainability? Is becoming unsustainable something we should be worried about now and if so, what can we do as a community to help? Sustainability to me is something that is not talked about enough in our day to day lives. Is this something we’re taking seriously? Over the past few years I have realised how much sustainability and the environment has become a sort of passion of mine. With my work currently my main focus is to spread awareness through art about sustainability issues. I think that art has the power to speak to people in a way in which we can’t speak to each other and sending strong messages with my practice is something that has become important to me recently.

Is this something we’re taking seriously? Are we doing enough or should we be saving our money for something else? Planet B. With my work this year I want to create a collection of textile pieces that will that will make people think about their actions and what they could be doing to save the planet and stop hurting everything on it, including ourselves.

With my work this year I want to create a collection of textiles pieces that will make people think. I want my work to make people think about how we are not only hurting the environment and animals but also how we are harming ourselves. My aim this year is to make the view feel something when looking at my work.
