Sally Castle - Recycled lily

Lily made from water bottles, drinking straw and a cocktail stirrer
Medium: Recycled plastic

Plastic bottles recycled as a lily? My rather tenuous link is an Oscar Wilde quote: "No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.”

Coincidentally, I have recently taken a few weeks break from lino cut printing and have been painting. I have been attracted to subjects involving the less obviously beautiful subject matter: discarded objects and mechanical structures seen in a natural environment. Making a recycled lily was a natural progression of
this vision.
