Pollution is a huge issue facing our environment today, this photo brings light to that as the trees “cannot breath” in the image.
You never know it’s value, until it’s gone.
These images bring awareness to excessive amount of trash that is filling our landfills today.
These two photos bring awareness to the mindset of many Americans that leads them to consume above what is necessary. This overconsumption leads to excessive waste.
This mixed media painting helps to promote taking care of our environment. It conveys this message by comparing two opposite realites: the one on the left showing polluted air and lots of waste, whereas the one on the right showing clean air and greenery. This piece helps the viewer to remember to conserve the natural beauty of Texas, portrayed by the picture on the right.
This piece is a collage artwork. If you look closely you can see that it is made out of small strips of newspapers and magazines. On the left side, a girl is shown dropping a bottle and on the right, a turtle is seen eating the very same bottle (the x’s on it’s eyes showing its death). This picture depicts the tragic reality of what can happen as a result of littering. Many times plastic waste ends up in the ocean where sea animals can die after mistaking it for their food. Littering is a very detrimental environmental problem and as this piece reminds us…. ‘One mistake, can cost a lifetime.’
This painting highlights the natural beauty of nature, which as you’ll notice in the painting has no pollutants, or man-made things that take away from it. Pieces like this are what reminds us of our duty to help restore places back to its original beauty.
