Ghost Gear


The Ghost Gear series is a continually developing body of work highlighting the growing abundance of littered and abandoned consumer and industry plastic waste in the ocean. The plastic bags, films, ropes and nets featured in these prints, became a focus not soley for their visual characteristics but because they’re uniquely so abundant, so commonplace, that they’ve become (with extremely detrimental repercussions) part of the “natural” landscape. This series consists mainly of screen prints, some with hand colored elements, but also cyanotypes, etchings and lithographs. Below is a selection of mostly large screen prints (with the exception of a few varied cyanotypes) now existing within numerous private and corporate collections.
