The common plastic shopping bag is an object that is generally not considered beautiful or worthy of much contemplation. “Bags” is a series of photographic studies featuring plastic bags containing objects which are obscured by the heightened texture of the plastic surface. What the bags hold is floating in a void, reduced to clues about colour palette, shape and scale. In absence of specific details, the artist is interested in how these clues might tap into our deep memories that allow our imagination to “see” the object instantly, or whether we may never totally grasp what is inside. By studying the surface of the bag to try and see beyond it, we are appreciating its form in a new way and it asks us to reconsider its value as an object of beauty.
