My Dreams are Sweet
Cast plastic waste and debris
My Dreams are Sweet’ refers to the desire to retreat from reality on an increasingly hostile planet.
In an exploration of ‘nature’ and the intricacies of human experience, Chrystal Rimmer ventures into the dynamic interplay between art, science and personal mythos.
Enchanted by future geologies, biologies, and ecologies, her creations delve into the fabric of our contemporary world, where trash melds seamlessly into the landscape's narrative. Rimmer dismantles the oversimplified dichotomy between nature and humanity, questioning conventional notions of 'wilderness' and the ‘pristine’. Plastic metamorphoses into nature itself—a living, ubiquitous entity. Here, a man-made material becomes a battlefield for challenging antiquated notions—a contemporary panorama that blends synthetic and organic currents, capturing visions of our entangled world.
Chrystal Rimmer is a 2019 MFA graduate from The National Art School. Rimmer recently returned from two international residencies in the Netherlands and Scotland where she explored the material qualities of aluminium waste and microplastic pollutants found along shorelines and bodies of water.
Having received numerous accolades, notably the esteemed Lift Off Award upon completing her MFA at The National Art School, Chrystal Rimmer's work resides in numerous private collections both nationally and internationally.
