Born out of the ordinary, every day - almost right past you - litter comes "Garbage", a fascinating series from Toronto and Poland-based mixed media artist, Anya Mielniczek.
These collages are a colorful arrangement of limitless candy wrappers, labels, and miscellaneous tiny waste that pass through our hands almost undetected. Folded, shaped and arranged to bring light to pretty waste that still at the end of it all accumulated in corners of our house, pockets, and landfills as garbage.
Each can stand alone as a statement piece but are more magical in pairs and groups, "Garbage" is pretty art with a purpose.
Each piece is numbered (see images below) sold separately, 11 x 8.5 inches, framed, 2012
