Jane Gillings - sculptor
Jane Gillings epitomises the Mathatma Gandhi saying 'Be the change you want to see in the world'. Collecting jettisoned plastic pieces, her work is an example to others to recycle and reconsider the fickle disposition of our consumerist society. She states,'Often we can desperately want something or someone, only to, when we obtain that thing we covert, discard it and question why we wanted it in the first place.' An obsessive compulsive hoarder, her discarded plastic sculptures are the response to her own insatiable affliction.
