Art & Design Level 3 Year 1
My FMP piece is an acrylic painting presenting the journey of a plastic bottle from the moment it is baught to when it is thrown away and ends up in the sea polluting it and harming the creatures inhabiting it. The way that I painted the piece was inspired by the work of David Hockney who creates landscape paintings that incorporate a variety of bright colours which makes the landscapes look almost other worldly. My idea for the piece was inspired by an article I read online while doing my research about how much plastic is found in the seas and how drastically that number has increased. My piece was created to show how important it is to recycle and get rid of waste in an effective way to help out our planet and the creatures that inhabit it.
