“There is inspiration, but you have to find it.
Is working. “
– Pablo Picasso.
P.Listick is often identified as a material that has a high risk of environmental pollution. Globally, alarming trends in the use of plastics are having a devastating effect on the ecosystem (both underground and underground), destroying wildlife and the health of ordinary people. There is an urgent need to improve the way we handle plastic waste because a large part of it is lost to the environment. But for some creative souls, the plastic used is an effective tool and an inspiration for their creative process.
The title of the show is: Plastic, The Last Hero of the Great Steppe – The Art of Civil Solomon. Hosted by Andkulwa Gallery, Dubai, it highlights the environmental impact of waste plastics. Solei Suleimanova, from Kazakhstan, is a visual artist who seeks modern means of expression. These include recycled plastics, cellophane and polycarbonate. His latest artistic endeavor has proved to be a creative campaign with strong public participation and social impact on the people of Kazakhstan. She asked the local community to bring plastic bags for her pictures. He also took part in educational and social events to raise awareness about plastic pollution on the ground.
As a means of expression, plastic captures Sole’s life experiences beautifully. She says: “I accept the aesthetics of waste as a part of human existence. Therefore, I am ready to create people and landscapes as structures within it.”
Saul believes plastic is contaminated because it stays on the ground for decades. As a result, thousands of tons of non-perishable garbage lie on Kazakh grounds. To spoil its natural beauty. This warns people that the scenes of the beautiful Kazakh shepherd are now full of rubbish, and it is time to clean up. Art works directly with the public in the specific environment of the site.
The first day of her picture, look out of my window. Plastic bags are about human use. The two buildings are built with three closed windows. In the center of the picture, two green trees represent the color of life and hope. But below, a dark black-brown color makes fun of human existence. It preserves fresh air and pollutes the entire planet through the widespread use of plastics. Its color arrangement and natural beauty with polythene is impeccable.
A step forward. (2019) Suleimanova’s experience with the Kazakh Koktemi shows that in 2019 there was a series of peaceful protests by Kazakh civil society. During the turbulent times, thousands of Kazakhs protested against the fraudulent presidential election and the illegal naming of their capital. The work documents the dynamics of a typical Kazakh protest: faces, features, gestures and the colors people wear. Facial features and human anatomy are wonderfully captured in a plastic collage.
In an e-mail interview, the artist said: “The title was created by the curator of the exhibition, Nagora Akhmedova. I guess she talks about two important things in the title – first, plastic is just a material And as animals, it stays in the field after dissolving any other bio-material. And second, plastic is my main artistic material (I don’t like to use paint or canvas). I only use pre-used plastic bags. I use their pieces on plastic surfaces as polycarbonate or polyethylene.
“I keep talking about the step as a geopolitical trend. Again, again, again. – Spring is a short time when the soil is green. It comes back from time to time. Forever. They are burned by the surface of the sun. These words are also about repetitive, mostly boring, flat and endless scenarios. But at the same time, every blade of grass has a great power of equation. It reminds me of the power of civil society at a time when people are ready to stand together for their basic rights. A mud It is also about the energy and power of civil society.
