“Escott’s research-heavy practice involves faithful representations of mediated imagery on semi-transparent plastic surfaces, connecting plastic to the commodification of the “natural” by demonstrating Roland Barthes' statement that “the whole world can be plasticized…even life itself.” Escott uses plastic as a loaded surface for her drawings in order to not only critique environmentally destructive behaviors but also to chart the circulation of matter, images and ideologies.”
