Grocery Bag Art
Here’s another grocery bag turned into an art object by moi:
I took the bags out shopping this week, even though only 2 of the 4 were painted. The other two were prepped, like this:
The checkout kids really liked them. They were running their fingers over the painted dots on the finished bags. The dots of paint are pleasantly raised and three-dimensional, making them quite tactile. No one would be boorish enough to touch a painting, but grocery bags are meant to be handled, so there was no hesitancy. I was vaguely surprised but pleased. It’s an unexpected dividend: breaking down barriers between fine art and ordinary life.
I gave each checker one of my cards. You never know might come of it.
