“This piece was different from everything I’ve done before,” she says. “It was almost a performance, having me do it there live, and it was very successful. Everyone came to see what I was doing and asked a lot of questions about where plastic comes from.”
Turning trash into art
The project took four days, including sorting and cleaning the pieces, cutting them to the right size and composing them into the final image – two sailboats in Hamilton Harbour with the coastline in the background, inspired by a photo taken during last year’s Argo Group Gold Cup.
Andrews’ art will hang in Argo’s Bermuda office as a reminder of the importance of reducing ocean pollution. Additionally, the company presented a donation to Keep Bermuda Beautiful, whose mission is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility in reducing waste and eliminating litter through action and education.
