Ruby Loves Art for Housewives
We don’t know how she does it, but Cynthia Korzekwa continues to post a plethora of intriguing and inspiring recycled art links on her blog, Art for Housewives. Now, Ruby Re-Usable and the rest of the Olympia Dumpster Divers make art from discards such as upcycled plastic bags, scrap wood, salvaged metal, reclaimed glass … the list goes on to include road kill tire shreds and anything else that has been tossed and found.
But Cynthia K has discovered an artist who utilizes household lint and DUST; behold Suzanne Proulx‘s Dust Bunnies:
Follow-up info on these dust bunnies at Green Muze
These are wonderful, they’re so full of life and what a cool idea to make bunnie sculptures out of dust! Dust bunnies indeed.
I want one of these bunnies, not sure why exactly, it would probably just sit around and collect dust 😉
Love the bunnies, if mine looked like that I’d NEVER vacuum.
These are so adorable.
I clicked the link to her website. The potatoes with teeth and eyeballs are really scary…
mille grazie for the promo!
what’s so incredible is that the world is full of talented women who are creating art that’s relevant, ironic and full of spirit…without them I wouldn’t have a blog.
from make art, not trash to Synergy & Solidarity!
Cynthia, you really are an inspiration, I first found your blog while I still had dial-up, and would happily get lost in all of those links. I sent you pics of some of my work and you told me that I needed to start posting on Flickr, which I finally did last year (wish I had listened to you sooner, I really enjoy Flickr).
And of course, now I have a blog, which was I started in 2006 to document my own project but soon realized that I am also interested in sharing and connecting with other artists who make art not trash!
SO thank you for continuing to do Art for Housewives, love, etc Ruby
(ps and thank you to ALL the bloggers who continue to post about art, poetry, trash, rubbish, garbage, waste and recycling, and also for leaving comments 😉
