Kim Thittichai has been experimenting with plastic for many years. First of all, on the Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics BA degree course at the University of Brighton, and then on and off over the years through her art practice.
Since moving to the Loop Head peninsula, Kim has become increasingly aware of the waste plastic being washed up on the local beaches and the use of plastic on local farms. Attracted by the colour of the plastic and its thermoplastic qualities, Kim has been collecting and experimenting with various types of local waste plastic for the past 4 years.
This exhibition will show work using two different types of plastic. Large sheets of plastic from local farms and colourful plastic screw bottle tops.
Can plastic be seen as beautiful? Can plastic be seen as art?
