ECO ART – ArTELIER Modique
I am Hermine A. Sammut, a self-employed artist, and welcome you to my online showcase of my “ECO ART “, a collection of artworks with a great environmental aspect, produced at my studio called ArTELIER Modique. Atelier is the German word for studio and the extra”r” stands for ART. The name Modique is a combination of MODern and AntIQUE, which expresses my passion for upcycling old antiques into modern art pieces.
Up-cycling and repurposing had been in me since childhood. In 1991 I was permitted to teach the experimental subject: ” jewelry and gift ideas made from recycled waste products” at a secondary school in Vienna. Ever since this time, “WASTE” had become part of my raw material for my art pieces and in 2007 together with Jackie Roberts, I exhibited for the first time my “ECO ART “at the Art exhibition called Reincarnation of Waste in Qala Gozo.
I am also running experiences and art courses that bring you closer to Gozo’s nature in the middle of nature at my outdoor studio in Nadur.
