I dream in Colour.
"I take pattern and forms found in nature and abstract them to create mixed media installation pieces using man made objects which are found on coastlines and in waterways.”
Coast is an ongoing series which explores coastlines, rivers, canal systems and wetlands. Through Coast Brendon looks at how the natural and manmade exist together, exploring how balance is lost. She then uses her work as a tool for dialogue, awareness and activism in the area of marine biology.
Sustainability, recycling and the reusing of objects has long been part of Brendon’s practice. By working in this way she seeks to enable art making to be accessible. The surfaces and artefacts that she works with have a previous use or life and by reworking them she gives them a new identity.
Coast examines how the the manmade overburdens the natural, questioning throw-away culture and modern lifestyles. The works are made partly or entirely with found objects and then altered, painted on and shaped to resemble natural forms. Inspired by pattern found in nature Brendon draws attention to sustainability by using stunning beauty found in water systems and coast lines.
