Baby New Years Plastic World

Baby New Years Plastic World

description

A painting of a baby, sleeping peacefully floating in the center of the picture, the beach in the background, seagulls fly above her and the beach ground is covered with plastic pollution that came in from the tide. The inside of her stomach and her ribs overflowing with plastic bottles, caps, barbie doll heads and other plastic debris. This painting is about plastic bits found in the bellies of Albatross bird colonies nesting off the N. Pacific coast. The painting reflects our neglect of care for our ocean and our overconsumption.
