Kaylene Maalste – Seasons Blemished by Pollution
It has always worried me that pollution in the air affects the environment in many ways. In this piece I have endeavored to show how pollution dulls Autumn colours. The inspiration for my tree comes from a Paul Klee painting. To dull the atmosphere I have place organza over the bright silk of the tree and slashed it in areas to allow the underneath colour show through. The sun is a circle of silk foiled with gold. I used hand dyed Dupion silk and over dyed the sky area to depict pollution descending through the atmosphere.
