Artist Josh Blackwell reconstitutes the plastic bag—a symbol of the affront to fighting climate change—into a work of art. Using his training as a painter, he embellishes the single-use plastic with embroidery stitches, beading, weaving, and painting. The bags are now shells of their former selves. Inspired by historical sources ranging from the Italian futurists to outsider art from the American South, these flattened pieces are abstract artworks that happen to be plastic bags. They are much more precious than their original intended use.
