For Year 13 painting. Thilafushi is an island located in the Maldives that is used to dump rubbish collected from all over the country. However the island is currently oversaturated with rubbish, and is now slowly leaking into our pristine waters. This issue contrasts with the ideal visual most people have of the Maldives; anIsland Paradise. I wanted to shed light to this issue with my painting board.
Scrap pieces of plastic and metal were intergrated into my compositions to bring a new dimension to my works. I also explored painting on pieces of plastic film and other surfaces as well.
