About Mary Salles
There are no upcoming events
I have been working with different mediums such as oil and acrylic for 23 years but, for the past two years I have been researching and doing art from recycling materials.
My main recycling materials are newspaper, plastic bottles and plastic bags which is one of the biggest enemies of nature. Instead of biodegrading, plastic bags undergo a process known as photo-degradation which involves the chemical breakdown of a substance into smaller pieces due to the absorption of sunlight. Plastic can take a hundred years to decompose, eventually contaminating our soil and water.
My objective is to show the value and beauty that can be found in the waste we produce inspiring other artists to help save the planet using their creativity and turn trash into a treasure of their own.
