Trash To Treasure

5 Oct

Club Creative Studio’s post today helps you to identify trash to treasure finds. Hunt out artists that are sharing their creativity by way of recycling, reusing or repurposing items into their artwork.  They are all around!
Many feel that our planet is existing in a fragile ecological state, with global warming issues and other changes amplifying the world’s questionable status.  Making art incorporating found objects, or recycled objects is one way to make a difference. Creating recycled art gives the viewer the opportunity to appreciate creativity and found objects while waking up to environmental issues at the same time.  Creating or admiring art from recycled elements provides the viewer with an opportunity to find a deeper meaning in art.  The viewer is asked to appreciate in an aesthetic way, something that is commonly found or normally discarded.

Blue River

Art by: John Dahlsan entitled Blue River, Finalist in the 2003 Wynne Prize for Australian Landscape at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, would like to collect $15,000.00 for “Blue River” made from plastic bags.

Other artists as well continue to push the limits of incorporating found items into their artful creations.  Here are a few others that I have identified as artists embracing the recycling, reusing and repurposing elements of life.  Enjoy admiring the creations.

Art: Betsy Soifer

Enjoy animal figures with recycled metals and found objects from artist Betsy Soifer.  Cigar box instruments by hammeredfrets.com and recycled office paper hand-cut and applied as fashion.  Can we get more diverse than this?

Club Creative Studio Art

Club Creative Studio has a series of items that incorporate found objects.  Pendants made with bottle caps are artfully filled with items that are hand-picked from the sands of the beach near where I reside on the Atlantic East Coast. I include small shells, pebbles, real shark teeth and small beads.  A simple cord or chain brings the simplistic look to life. Each being totally unique.
