Dear visitor, since 2014 our news is transmitted via Twitter as it is more active and seen by a larger audience.
Photo made by the artist Anita Waltman who was inspired by the ‘plasticsoup, the plastic waste in the oceans.
Athough her background is in textiles, she now works predominantly with plastic. In her current body of work, Plastic Classics, Old Masters are given a contemporary twist. She uses anything of the right size, shape or colour: toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewellery, curtain hooks, springs etc. No colour is added – everything is used exactly ‘as found’.
