|"Toy Handle": Arrangements of beach plastic collected from Kehoe Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore.
Stephanie and I had the privilege of staying at the beautiful Cavallo Point Lodge in Sausalito in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge. At the lodge they have a great little gallery that is currently showing From Kehoe to Cavallo - the mystery in the mess Prints by Judith Selby Lang and Richard Lang
July 8 – October 22, 2010.
These creative images are photographs of found plastic debris on the pristine Northern California coastline
. The artist couple has been collecting for over 10 years and has amassed a large collection. They use the debris to make artworks including large sculptures, installations, photo tableaus and jewelry.
Here is what they do in their own words:
We are a collaborative team. Our love of nature is combined with our interest in science to produce an on-going series of art works about the oceans and the environment. While the content of our work has a message about the spoiling of the natural world by the industrial world, our final intent is aesthetic and celebratory.
