Upcycled Inner Tube Art

Utilizing bicycle inner tubes, my abstractions create both a literal and visual tension as I vary the depth and width, direction and line through the constant pull of the material. Sculptural, yet constrained to singular planes, my works are alternative drawings retaining the aesthetic of former purpose.

I am up-cycling, taking environmentally non-recyclable materials and utilizing them to challenge perspective. While I have utilized various mediums over the years to create art, my passion for textures and decayed, man-made objects, has led me to found materials. I love a true evidence of age in objects - it gives them a depth that cannot be replicated by chemical or man-made means.

ik zie dat je dingen maakt met binnen fietsbanden. nu doe ik dat zelf ook graag en wil het ook een beetje gaan verkopen maar heb een klein probleem. als het in de zon buiten of achter het raam staat dan slaat het wit uit. en gaat het niet meer weg. heb jij dat ook zo ja wat doe je er tegen om het te voorkomen?

facebook kun je al mijn creaties zien .sjanine vdberg
