Plastic Eden is a solo exhibition of new photographic works by Perth based artist David Collins portraying a series of contemporary characters in seductive surrounds. At first glance the intricately arranged scenes present an opulent sphere where languid beings reign, but beneath are notions exploring a darker terrain. Through this series of works Collins suggests that technological advances, which aim to liberate the consumer from the hardships of the natural world, have also propelled an ecological awakening. The scenes depicted in Plastic Eden encourage reflection upon the environment and the damage inflicted on it.
