The Vanity of Plastic

The Vanity of Plastic explores the ever-growing problem caused by the everyday use of plastic. The work operates as a study into the most common types of plastic that constitute regularly used items such as drinking bottles and shopping bags. A total of 19 pieces of plastic are portrayed, representing the number of years that nearly half the plastic in existence has been produced. Influenced by Vanitas still life paintings, the work adopts the message of possessions remaining on earth after their owners are not. With just 35% of Europe’s plastic being recycled, the work operates as a wake-up call and encourages a more responsible attitude towards the use of plastic, before the problem becomes something too big to control.
