More to do with plastic.

With her piece on fracking finished ,apart from how it will hang, Deryll had continued to move on with her collected plastics.The majority is made up of the flimsy thin stuff which covers over goods contained in plastic cartons.She has been experimenting to see exactly what can be done.She has heated and shrunk them above,


This plastic resisted heat so she twisted ,knotted and screwed  it into shape ,stitched and gathered it up.The one below melted and shrivelled.



She took some garden fleece, painted it and applied heat. It reacted a little like Tyvek Why these experiments you may ask .......well she is thinking about "a sea of plastic' Pun intended and a very potent message.



Finally some images of her first piece.







We hope you'll come and visit our different exhibition in UWE on Thursday.Friday and Saturday August 29th, 30th, 31st 2019.
