@instagram Artist Preta Wolzak’s (@pretawolzak) textured mixed-media pieces focus on hard issues, including gender equality, representation and race. Her collections “Ma Petit Inuite” and “Arctic Charade” (pictured) confronts the impact of humans’ behavior on our planet and the effects of climate change.⁣ ⁣ “I am driven by my irritation of how we are treating the globe, like tourism at Antarctica and the Arctic and mining for resources in those particular areas which are so vital for the balance in the world,” says Preta, who incorporates embroidery, sequins, acrylics and leather into her work.⁣ ⁣ “I love to use acrobats in my work, who seem to stand for joyfulness, carelessness, sparkle, like what tourism looks like on first sight. People need entertainment and they see the world as one big amusement park.⁣ ⁣ The acrobats stand for the foolish behavior of mankind ruining its environment, which now even threatens to spread out to the last untouched areas of our planet: the North and South Pole.⁣ ⁣ I think it’s better that people get my message through humor and joyfulness. It can be serious, humorous and aesthetic at the same time.⁣” ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Art by @pretawolzak
