Sandra Hansen, MFA
With a nod to Hokusai's "Mt. Fuji Off Kanagawa" this painting is a joyful expression of polyethylene and latex gloves which make up some of the detritus of the seas.
Polyethylene and Latex

When Sandra Hansen became an Eco artist in 2014 she began painting about environmental issues. She then moved to creating art from plastic bags. Sandra wanted to become more environmentally sound in her art practice. In 2015 she fell in love with the magic of creating something translucent from leaves and bark. Handmade paper is completely environmentally sound and can be absolutely gorgeous. Its rich texture and its delicate gauzy effects are amazing. Paper has the ability to bring alive the horrendous problems of water pollution simply by putting plastic bags into the pulp. Paper is exceedingly versital as well and can be used in many multimedia objects and hangings.
