James Shaw has been working with recycled plastic since 2013 using a series of self-created ‘plastic extruding guns’. These tools unpack a different way of working with this very common and problematic material, bringing it out of the industrial park and into the studio. These works attempt to bring out the beauty and excitement in this material and transform it into something of lasting interest and value.
