In the latest project titled The Lost Planet, Natalia Kapchuk highlights crucial issues such as ecological damage and the immeasurable amounts of plastic waste that litter the world's ocean. To contrast naturally resourced and industrial materials, the artist utilizes mediums such as tree bark, sand, stones, and fermented moss with polymers, resi-crete, gilding, metal chips and plastic. Implementing varying techniques, Kapchuk also creates works using up-cycled plastics collected from various places around the world during her travels. While pushing her own artistic approach working with fiberglass and LED lighting, she continues to explore mediums in the frame of one theme to develop narratives in her signature style.

Fundamentally, Natalia Kapchuk’s main points of focus is the beauty of nature and ecological concerns present within the world. With this in mind, the artist uses her art to champion causes that touch us all, bringing attention to the pollution and ills of climate change threatening the world today. Before creating her works, Kapchuk undergoes extensive research on the topics of global warming, ocean plastic and pollution, and other destructive impacts. As a result, the artist expresses the message that humanity should think more about environmental protections and the conservation of natural resources.

The Lost Planet collection of mixed media artworks emphasizes how the effects of human influence is changing and destroying nature. This can be seen in the works, ‘The Winner Takes it All’, ‘Priceless Treasure’ and ‘The World is On Fire’, for example. Each piece is at least a metre in diameter, correlating to their impact both as work of art and the message they tell. Divided into two sections and spanning both floors of the gallery, the exhibition is dedicated to the elements highlighting the beauty of nature in differing ecosystems and corners of the world, followed by, the negative impacts mankind places on the planet and its oceans. Natalia Kapchuk believes good art is filled with passion that may change a mindset.

“I use my art to draw awareness to the planet’s plight. In The Lost Planet series I tell a story of our planet throughout different angles. From both beautiful perspectives to unwanted ones such as wildfires, coral bleaching and oil spills. I hope it generates naturally produced emotions. My sole aim is to inspire people to think of their actions towards nature, it’s resources and living creatures, to find ways we as humans, corporations, and political governments can contribute to preserve the planet for future generations”. – Natalia Kapchuk
