Wasted beauty. Everyday we single-use tons of non-biodegradable packaging and other material. Part of it ends up on the street, inevitably finding its way to the beauty that is nature, affecting it more than it is already affected. Once used, these packagings lose their value. Did they actually ever had value? Attention, time, energy and resources were once put into making them. For one-time use only. Waste happens on several levels.**

** Update: until 31 January 2021, two works from the Wasted Beauty series are available in the online gallery of Kiekie Art. Prints can be purchased against very reasonable prices, in different sizes and on different materials. See https://kiekie-art.com/collections/all.
