A series of monthly exhibition takes place at The Hub, showcasing work by Yeovil Creatives members, ranging from paintings, prints, drawings and mixed media.
For this exhibition and for this special and committed place, I choose to show the “Plastic world” acrylic set, realised this year in my studio in Eastville Project Space, very close to the HUB. These paintings, like often in my works, decrypts matter of ecology, pollution and environment. Bottles city, plastic body, underground views and net in the sea putting in spotlights my areas of concern.
