Repurpose is so excited to announce that renowned artist Andy Byers will be designing and unveiling a sculptural art piece made from materials including Repurpose plant-based products at the 2017 Natural Products Expo West trade show in Anaheim, March 9-11.
Byers is perhaps best known for his work with Isabella Rossellini on the short film series “Green Porno,” in which Rossellini enacts the mating rituals of various insects and other animals utilizing cardboard cut-outs and foam-rubber sculptures created by Byers. Byers has also done collaborative installations for brands such as Victoria's Secret, J Crew, American Express, Ann Taylor, Target, and Gap as well as artists Sean Lennon and Aimee Mann.
“Paper has always been an important material to work with because of its temporary nature,” said Byers. “I use paper by creating form and space with it. Once the art is completed and installation has served it purpose, the moment passes, never to be experienced again. Repurpose products tap into that intention of creation and use of what the earth provides us. I am proud to be creating something for people who carry such a passionate mission behind their brand.”
Byers will be creating an original piece inspired by the Repurpose mission to make products from plants. Featuring materials that make up Repurpose products and packaging, Byers will repurpose paper into a visual display of the products growing from his interpretation of larger than life plants. The display will be available for viewing at Repurpose’s Booth 5155 only during the run of the Expo West Convention.
