jandals & driftwood

This week I have made some more jandal art pieces for "Buana Satu".
I mounted the fish-shapes cut from jandals found on my beachcombing trips around the North Island here in NZ onto interesting pieces of driftwood I have salvaged along the coasts. Pieces of discarded fishing ropes serve as hangers so that the works may be attached to walls .....
As an environmental artist I attempt to fashion artworks which address serious environmental issues (in this case the pollution of our seas and the depletion of fish stocks) in a gentle, even humourous fashion, as I find that people respond to humour in a far more positive manner than they do to blaming and accusatory approaches.......
