Artist Creates Colorful Arrangements With Beach Finds

Based in West Sussex, artist Caroline South has one of the loveliest feeds we’ve come across. She collects waste during her beach walks and organizes the objects in ombre or rainbow order then takes the photo of the composition. She has an interesting way to raise awareness against environmental pollution. She tells her story as follows “I studied Art and Design and then went on to study 3DD Ceramics at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design. I have always enjoyed being creative, whether that is painting and drawing, crafting and making or styling and photography. I especially love creating with natural and found items. As a family we spend lots of time exploring the South coastline collecting treasures such as plastic, pottery and sea glass, which I often use in my photography. Colour is an important aspect of my work and I love to create colour themed photographs”. Pieces of Lego, monopoly houses, golf tees and cracker toys are just some of the items that can be seen in her artful images. Caroline’s collection series makes a powerful message to the people who thinks “it’s just one little pieces of plastic, who cares.” She states “What changes have you made to reduce your single use plastic? Let’s all make a difference by carrying a refillable water bottle, even small changes add up! Plastic bottles are one of the biggest single use plastic offenders with one million being bought every minute. They take years to degrade and break down into smaller microplastics, which then make there way into the food chain and kill thousands of marine mammals and sea birds .” Curious about her colourful artistic collection?
