Artist: Helen Standen

Autumnish was inspired by the colour that creeps into our trees during this beautiful season. I experience life in colour and create art that bursts into life with colour. The colour used in this artwork is made from fused soft plastic and unlike leaves that decompose back into soil, plastic does not decompose. This means that all plastic that has ever been produced and has ended up in the environment is still present there in one form or another. Combining wire, colour and reusing waste I was in my happy place. Reused clothesline and electrical wire plus fused plastic bags and packaging
