Walthamstow artist fights back against pollution by recycling plastics to make art

By Rudi Abdallah in Arts

AN ARTIST who works in Walthamstow is fighting back against environmental damage by recycling plastics to make art.

Sandie Sutton, who works in Blackhorse Lane Studios, converts plastic bottles into colourful marine landscapes and creatures.

She has teamed up with Waltham Forest Greenpeace for a Landscapes not Landfills exhibition next month.

She said: “We want to encourage people to recycle more and find creative uses for throwaway containers.”

Sculptures created from plastics recovered by Greenpeace activists in parks and woodlands will be shown at Blackhorse Lane Studios.

Ms Sutton added: “We hope the exhibition will help to raise awareness and open up discussion about ways to fight pollution and protect nature.”

Family workshops will be held on June 17 and 18 when children will be shown the art of creating a model army of recycling heroes.

The exhibition is part of the E17 art trail in June.
