“When I received an email from Ken Marquis about the Landfillart Project, I was intrigued at the prospect of being part of a huge collective of artists from across the world all working on the similar metal canvases. The tremendous variety in the work that was already completed and displayed on the website inspired me to take on this unusual challenge.”Laura Fayer
