Metamorphosis - Paul James Gallery

Metamorphosis

Part of a series of paintings about change, in two parts. Part 1, the destructive, subtractive nature of change and decay. A subtractive technique just leaves a trace of the former image on the canvas. The process is akin to washing your soul, pairing down ur life and possessions. Leaving gaps but keeping the essence. and part 2 the the gradual building back up.

Paul James

“Painting and capturing images with photography is a channel for the expression of my thoughts and moods. My paintings represent something that cannot be captured by photography, and I prefer that photography captures images that cannot otherwise be remembered.”

Paul James has been painting and capturing images through photography for over 15 years as a means of expressing his thoughts and moods, and maintaining his childhood fascination with the world. He prefers to paint images that cannot be captured with photography, and produce photographic images of things unseen.
Paul’s specialization is in large scale non-representative abstract paintings and photography that express dynamism, starkness and abstractness of life. He often has active closed eye hallucinations – random patterns, images and colour appear when his eyes are closed. This, along with his background in mathematics, electronics, music and computer programming are represented in some of his artworks.
