Through the Garden Gate

Isabella Shatte

Shadecloth, chicken wire, fabric scraps, raffia, rattan, string, rope, fabric paint, ready-made signs, repurposed hat, cable ties, fairy lights.

As well as being an artist who loves to paint and draw, I enjoy repurposing materials I have on hand to create artwork ranging from mosaiced musical instruments to sculptures and wearable art. This work represents the discovery of an abandoned garden where nature is slowly but surely reclaiming its territory. I am also conscious of the waste continually being generated by mankind and so, I am purposely repurposing and recycling materials and items I have already.
