Caught in the Web' (2016) was an exhibition by artist Fatric Bewong which drew focus to the consumerism behavior and its impact on the environment. Fatric's art had a skillful use of fabric and plastic materials. She did an excellent job of recycling by re-using plastic materials in her work and subtly hinted the advocacy for a cleaner city. 'The Bride' - entire gown made from recycled grocery bags and other plastic bags. 'Birds eye view' - abstract piece
