Description

"Vortices" Exhibition - Fundación Canal Isabel II, Madrid, 2011 Solo Exhibition comissioned to the artist by Canal Foundation and having "water" as the core theme. Vortex, Tide, Flow, Tajo, Pressure and Drift were presented at the exhibition. “Vortices” was inspired by the Great Pacific Garbage Vortex, a vast accumulation of marine debris floating at or just bellow the water's surface in the Pacific. The accumulation is approaching the dimensions of the European continent. This waste will not only remain where it is for the foreseeable future, it is also growing at an alarming rate, fed by the worldwide production and disposal of plastic goods. The Great Pacific Garbage Vortex is an environmental disaster that is only beginning to unfold.
