Artist Connection • An artist I found interesting is Jane Perkins she takes recycling to a whole another level in portraits. As opposed to traditional forms of recycling, Perkins' art infuses the items she uses with even greater value than they had in the first place. With themes of environmentalism and climate change becoming increasingly popular in the art world, one artist in particular is putting eco-friendly philosophies to practice with portraits made entirely of unwanted objects. Recycling and reusing objects normally destined for the landfill has always been a creative process, but in the hands of a skilled artist, the practice can result in masterpieces superior to works crafted of more traditional mediums. Such artwork has the power to broaden the imagination as well, turning the most unassuming trash-bin or cluttered drawer into an artist's palette. Inspired by Ecuadorian hairstylists, who are known to use broken jewelry and other shiny objects in their designs, British artist Jane Perkins began creating broaches from similar bits and pieces that would normally go unused. Since 2008, she's expanded her recycling technique to make portraits using buttons, toys, plastic forks--or nearly anything else she can get her hands on. • http://www.treehugger.com/culture/recycling-artist-creates-portraits-from-trash.html
