This is my second piece in a series of three based on street art by the wonderful Alex Lucas (@lucas_antics on Twitter). The title comes from a street art by Alex called Uncertain World and the mollusc forms part of a larger artwork up on Park Row here in Bristol.
My take on this is to place my young woman picking up a discarded plastic bottle just in front of the mollusc which has an empty aerosol in its tentacles. Plastic pollution is such a huge problem these days and I wanted to relate to this in my painting.
Along the same lines, the model (@stephbridet on Twitter, fabulous model) is wearing a gorgeous upcycled dress made by Linda Thomas, a local dress designer (@linda_eco_design) who works exclusively with upcycled material into which she stitches beautifully designs.
I am keen to promote local here and will continue to collaborate with local artists/models/designers as often as I can. We creatives all need to support each other.
After the next piece, I will be working on London street art scenes as I build up to the London Art Fair at the Oxo Tower in November. More in a later blog.
