Pauline Bastard and her Recycled Art

French artist Pauline Bastard creates works as ephemeral as they are powerful, easily identifiable, which give new life to familiar objects and surroundings with a touch of humor and originality. In her latest series " Beautiful Landscapes," the artist creates collages of imaginary scenes using torn-up pages from old textbooks and photo albums.
 Her artwork is currently on view in a group show untitled REHAB, l'art de re-faire, the art of re-making, at the EDF Diversiterre Foundation in Paris. This exhibition focuses on the incorporation of recycled materials as "a rediscovered artistic practice and the symbol of the struggle against local environmental dysfunctionality," curator Benedicte Ramade said in a statement.
