We’d had a particularly windy winter and on this particular day, leaves missing from trees, all I could focus on was the bags caught up in trees. At first I was shocked at how much rubbish we allow to escape from our rubbish bins and I started identifying the different shops that these bags were from. And for some weeks after, all I noticed anywhere I went was the bags in trees and I became a little fixated! The shapes, negative space, colours, the lovely torn edges all became very influential to me along with the bark from nearby trees.
