The creative and evocative exhibition is a collaboration between Sydney-based sculpture artists Lucy Barker, Jane Gillings. They present everyday items repurposed in such a way as to question our consumption habits. Jane Gillings has been a practising artist for over 30 years, with her work always containing an underlying reference to waste, overconsumption and how the generations to come can avoid disaster. Lucy Barker explores our digital and physical worlds and how the two intersect.

The eye-popping Art for the Planet 2: Field installation will showcase 64 square-fields, drawing from multiple disciplines including painting, drawing and mixed media sculpture. Each field is made from hundreds of recycled objects and materials, such as rubber thongs, metal zippers, coat hangers, electronic device cables and plastic cutlery.

"The waste we leave behind is remarkable," said aMBUSH Gallery Co-Director, Bill Dimas. "Field aims to engage audiences, to tap into their personal experiences and backgrounds, in order to open their minds to more thoughtful ways of consuming and disposing of everyday objects."

Art for the Planet 2: Field is a fun interactive event for kids to help them understand the impact individuals make on the environment.
