»Cordelia Norris DescriptionThe fifth painting in the exhibit, "Hybrid Ocean," exploring our seemingly innocuous relationship with plastic contrasted with magical realist explorations of plastic's impact in marine ecosystems. Set against sunny skies, this plastic bottle of Coke is presented in the style of a classic advertising illustration--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 "Thank You," which shows plastic bottles and bags in the wild.
