The Paper Bag Award Show

Cross Gallery
Opening July 18 

Electra Street

My bags are each made from twelve supermarket brown paper lunch bags that have been pulled apart and reconstructed. They are rock hard. 

Paper Bag, 2020, oil on paper, 21 x 28 x 8 cm.

The bag ‘painting’ is based on a memory of sugar coated candy. When I was at high school I had a part time job bagging candy for Coles in Bourke Street, Melbourne.

Many thanks to the award judge John Greenhaigh for selecting 'Paper Bag' as the winner!
There are so many great entries from around the world.

Black Stripe Bag, 2020, 21 x 25 x 14 cm.

This bag painting is based on the memories of the bags you get when you buy fine art materials.
