»Cordelia Norris DescriptionThe first painting in the exhibit, "Hybrid Ocean," exploring our seemingly innocuous relationship with plastic. Set against sunny skies, everyday plastic goods are presented in the style of classic advertising illustrations, where they were marketed as appealing, refreshing, fun. The devastating impact caused by the thoughtless use and disposal of consumer plastics is explored in the corresponding larger paintings, which depict the chimeras created by our carelessness. This painting pairs with "Ashtray Hatchlings," which shows cigarette butts in the wild.
