Steve McPherson

Since 2007 Steve McPherson’s primary source materials have been discarded plastic objects that wash ashore on his local Kent coast of the UK. He is at once archaeologist, collector and paradoxical treasure hunter. While it is impossible to ignore the environmental concerns present in his work, he imposes his own aesthetic on the detritus, endowing the apparently mundane with resonance.
