Plastic Confetti refers to micro-plastics, nurdles and bio-beads; the degraded plastic pollutants found in our drinking water, seas, rivers and marine life, along the tideline, in the soil where we grow our crops, in the food-chain and our bodies, where it accumulates in our blood and organs, including the ovaries.
Artist Helen Savage undertakes an archaeology of the tideline, examining the accumulations of plastic entwined with organic forms: egg cases, sea-weed and shells. Paul Sayers creates seductive paintings of plastic bottles filled with water that reflect and refract the light. These are works about the beauty and the horror of plastic.
