I was very fortunate to be chosen as a finalist in Reart at the M2 Gallery in Surry Hills.  Reart is an exhibition to inspire the world to reconsider the idea of waste. It focuses on innovation in upcycling from a selection of local and international artists.
In it’s first year running Reart will open it’s doors to the public on April 22nd to coincide with Earth Day. The exhibition will also highlight the launch of Retrash, a coffee table book showcasing the upcycled work of 82 designers and artists from 20 countries around the world.

We braved shocking weather to make it to the opening.  Lucky I suppose as it is quite a small gallery and it might have been jam packed if the weather was better. My entry is a piece I made at the tip during a couple of workshops run by former 'Artist in Residence' Sandy Bliim. Its called Edison and the Piano Man. Its made from light globes, clock parts, old wood, computer wire, screws, piano parts and golf tees.

I encourage you to go and have a look. There are some very unique and interesting pieces in this exhibition like the dress made from paper and the shark made from the lids of cans among other things. Its a short walk from Central Station so its in a great spot with lots of passing traffic there is sure to be a lot of visitors.
