Dutch-born Erwin Timmers is the both equally the co-founder and Director of the Washington Glass College and one particular of the planet’s earliest “environmentally friendly” artists.
His perform “references sociological and environmental concerns of concern to him, generally how we, as a modern society, take in and discard valuable resources. For this subject the selection of components results in being a a lot more critical discussion, so Erwin endeavors to use recycled elements to convey principles and strategies of recycling and use of the natural environment. Recycled glass is challenging to use, so he has had to create new and experimental methods to exploit the attributes of this content. A Demonstrate of Hands explores individual and cultural features as they relate to present working day social tendencies. Technological “advances” have transformed the landscape in human interaction, and social media focuses on elements of cultural decline, pretend information, mass manipulation, and diversion and division. This sequence is about the expression of nonverbal and abstract themes like have confidence in, conversation, and link. Erwin’s portfolio showcases the probability and attractiveness of recycled product, though encouraging the viewer to look at his or her environmental effect.”
