Maria Macabenta’s work is based around sustainable art practice, florals, and working collaboratively through socially engaged process. Maria’s flowers came about as a design to incorporate within her work, that could represent feelings and intangible experiences.
Utilising non-precious materials informs Maria’s focus on sustainability, and shifts the focus away from hierarchical resources and materials associated with fine art. Maria’s work highlights that the process of making art with accessible resources encourages freedom of expression.
