Recycled art. Work of Marzena Kawalerowicz
Exclusive pouches made of candy wrappers, armchairs made of empty plastic barrels, celebrity portraits composed of garbage. The potential of recycling is noticed not only by ecologists, but also by artists who find intriguing material for work in the waste of civilization.
The studio looks like a large landfill. Stacks of newspapers from around the world, dozens of broken toys, old maps, cartons, plastic bags, bent bottles. On the big desk there are spread papers and pencils, and underneath there is an unfinished painting, with paints and strange twisted plastic elements on top of it. This is the studio of Marzena Kawalerowicz in Warsaw. She is one of the few Polish artists who can be considered as a representative of the so-called trash art. She belongs to the still growing group of artists who use all kinds of rubbish, waste and leftovers as a material for her work.
