2019 has birthed a new way of looking at waste; we no longer perceive our old jam jars, hubcaps, and bottle tops as utilitarian entities. Young visionary, Summah Longley, can be seen steamrollering forwards in this age of consumerist awareness by creating some of the most eye-catching and empowering works centring around that weighty proverb: ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’.
Longley’s braille-esque creations walk a tight rope between visceral art and poetry. This Brighton trained artist re-purposes scrap metal within her work - punches words out of the rusted surface, creating compelling poems in the waste.
