''F u s i o n s'' From Rubbish to Relevant


After 13 years of working on Recycled Paper in Chile, Aviva brings her art work one step forward by recycling plastic bags.

One of her main concerns is to work with materials that we use in our daily life in order to leave a tangible record of our world in the 21st century.

By recycling plastic bags she reminds us that we are a mainly consuming society and appeals to awareness of our environment.

The fusion of colored plastic bags becomes a vivid palette that allows transparencies and textures which the artist uses to create a vibrant transformation from rubbish to relevant.

Aviva Sawicki carries out her work in her home studio in the Upper Galilee by the Rosh Pinah area.

She has exhibited her art work in Israel, Chile, Argentina, Germany and New York.
