“Plastic Exports “.

by timpughartist


“Plastic Exports “,is a mixed media installation /drawing  fixed onto an old rusted capstan on Whitehaven Harbour in West Cumbria.
I used a black pen to draw on an outline from a photograph of an old cargo boat leaving Whitehaven Harbour. I sketched the drawing onto an old carrier bag found on the beach.By using the bag,my intention was to highlight the ecological  concerns of plastic waste being deposited into the sea’s . Whitehaven now longer exports any goods or commodities except perhaps hazardous waste carelessly deposited into the high seas .
