Artist: Dave Parker SA Union Street Sculptors
Title: Trolley Folly
Materials: Steel, plaster, fabric
We are a society of shoppers. We seek satisfaction and comfort when we acquire goods that we often don’t need. More and more frequently people express their frustration with all the STUFF that clutters their lives. Manufacturing, packaging and disposal of this STUFF contribute to wholesale environmental degradation.
Shopping bags are tangible symbols of excess consumption. By making 150 miniature plaster replicas we are drawing attention to the whole dilemma.
Please note that prices listed do not include shipping. Artworks may be collected in person - you will be contacted by BNSW once you have made your purchase to arrange pick up. If you require shipping, please contact us to arrange a quote.
We are a committed group of artists who meet weekly to pursue our individual sculptural practices in a variety of media. We enjoy sharing ideas, skills and knowledge. We have collaborated on numerous installations locally and interstate.
