Alison McDonald | Wanton, Wild & Unimagined
This playful exhibition of sculptured recycled plastics using multiples of individual recycled materials to create new forms sits at the junction of sculpture, consumer culture and environmental concern.
Alison McDonald has spent many hours manipulating the humble plastic bottle, and collecting thousands of plastic lids to make a variety of unimagined and impossible creations inspired by plants, oceans and John Wyndham’s science fiction novel ‘Day of the Triffids’.
A travelling exhibition organised by Umbrella Studio contemporary arts, toured by Museums & Galleries Queensland. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program; and supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments.
