Plastic in all its forms produces enormous amounts of waste from use in our everyday lives. Annabelle Collett uses recycled goods to fashion a vast array of artworks from all types of plastics. She utilises discarded materials from domestic items such as plastic lids, old children’s toys, broken jewellery pieces and dumped containers and implements to make bold and vibrant statements highlighting the aesthetics of waste. Collett has exhibited extensively since 1979 and is represented in the collections of the Art Gallery of South Australia, Ararat Regional Art Gallery, the Northern Territory Museum and Art Gallery and the Victorian State Craft Collection.
