Garbage for a Cause

Garbage for a Cause 

Tuckahoe, NY

Note: This work was created using real pieces of garbage. I found the pink horse lying on a beach in Stamford, CT (and thought I would use it for some kind of Christmas composition), the pink tape dispenser (which appeared to be in great shape -- it was only missing the piece that holds a roll of tape -- probably the reason it was discarded) and vodka bottle in Tuckahoe, NY (though not next to each other). I placed these three pieces in a shady area that consisted of a crushed soda can, black plastic bag, black cloth bandanna and translucent piece of plastic to create this composition.

All pink/red items retained their color while the rest of the photo was converted to sepia with pink edges.

Originally I set out to see if I could find enough items for some kind of Veteran's Day tribute but when I found the pink tape dispenser, my plans changed. You never know what you may find when searching out litter!

Gary Schotel, Lancelo657, tigermaus, Magali Asselin and 64 other people have particularly liked this photo

It sure does. It was the tape dispenser that gave me the idea to create this composition especially since I saved the pink horse I found a few days earlier for future use.

When I found it, there wasn't much to take a good photo with. Yes, found objects as a master artist like you knows so well, can make a terrific work with the right pieces and color! It'll be very heartening to know the little pony got another life to bring joy to another child!
