Continuing his exploration of the power of everyday objects, Michael St. John’s Baghead - a paper bag rendered in pigmented cotton and personalized with hand-cut eyes and an individual button - inspires a multitude of personal and collective associations in the viewer. In his edition we may see a handmade toy or a sinister mask; we may recall the lighthearted nostalgia of a school sack lunch or notice a reference to the hooded figures prevalent in Philip Guston paintings, which evoke a similar breadth of possible readings: malevolent, cartoonish, a disguise.
