Eco-Artist Anne Cummings creates with her convictions to reduce, reuse,
Anne’s art is created using re-cycled, re-claimed, and re-purposed materials. The intent is to raise awareness about the volume of human waste we create, and its toll on places of natural beauty, even in a state considered as ‘green’ as Vermont. All the materials used to create Vermont Wastescapes, as well as the Local Food and Climate Change series were collected on the backroads and snowplow turnarounds from each of the fourteen counties of Vermont. Vermont Wastescapes is a large scale eco-art installation featuring images of natural areas from each county of Vermont.
In the Local Food series, the images are meant to represent vivid and colorful depictions of the food items originally contained in this roadside waste, such as the chickens used to create the chicken nuggets and sandwiches produced by a well-known fast food brand.
The Climate Change pieces are more spontaneous and somewhat abstract images of Vermont landscapes, many with organic rather than traditional geometric shaped “canvases.” At first glance, they are pleasing natural compositions, which is belied by the manmade discarded waste from which they are constructed, as well as the underlying theme of ecological change in the landscapes they depict
ReWreath is a new series of works which gives a contemporary twist to the traditional wreath form, using collections of recycled materials and other repurposed “post-consumer waste” to create unexpected decorative statements.
