Plastic Ocean: Visual Art acrylic on plastic

Plastic Ocean is an abstract photographic artwork that use acrylic painting on plastic to convey a surreal and dystopian representation of the world's oceans. The image is abstract but suggests a nightmarish vision of an ocean overwhelmed by discarded plastic, serving as a metaphor for the devastating impact of pollution on the Earth's ecosystems.

The once-pristine ocean is now choked with discarded plastic, highlighting the environmental crisis we face. But the work seeks to transcend literal interpretation, to serve as an allegory for the pollution of minds and thoughts within society.

The plastic ocean is a symbol, suggesting that fears of pollution are not only contaminating the physical world but are also poisoning the collective consciousness. The discarded rubbish of society becomes a metaphor for the toxic elements that infiltrate and degrade the quality of our thoughts.

The dystopian depiction prompts contemplation on the need for collective responsibility and conscious efforts to address both the tangible and intangible consequences of environmental degradation.

- does nature scream at us through our collective unconscious? Dreams of plastic pollution, nets trapping ideas, killing our mental ecological systems. Like fish in the poisoned ocean, hopes and ambitions are destroyed by avoidable calamity. Does the mind show you this in dreams?
