What is Upsculpting?
Upsculpting is the act of combining upcycling with sculpture to create environmentally conscious art. Upcycling is the reuse of discarded objects or materials to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original, in this case with marine plastics.
About Cindy Pease Roe:
Cindy Pease Roes lifelong journey as a nautical artist began 30 years ago when she lived on a sailboat in Nantucket Harbor. She has since lived in other seaside communities (currently Greenport, Long Island) as she gravitates towards people who share a similar admiration and respect for the ocean. Living on the water has honed Roes gift of seeing all of its nuances. Her ability to express the seas serenity, history, function and, increasingly, its vulnerability, has added another dimension to her work: environmental educator.
Roe’s overarching connection to the ocean is conveyed in paintings of endangered working waterfronts and seascapes. Most recently, she has garnered the interest of schoolchildren, art lovers and activists by collecting plastic flotsam she finds along the shoreline and transforming it into thought-provoking and visually stimulating sculptures. Roe works in a variety of media to capture the depth of her subject, including oil paints, encaustics, organic matter, plastic and sculpture, and created the “Wishing Whale” sculpture in The Studio @ SAC this past winter, which will remain on our grounds through Labor Day for all to enjoy. #upsculpt
