Feminine Mystique

This body of work examines the abstractness and randomness of smoke. Inside each image something can be seen or interpreted from the layers of smoke.

Event Horizon

The Event Horizon is is a collection of macro-photographic images of a single acrylic abstract painting. The images were displayed as part of  the Redefining Materials exhibition  22 June to 6 July 2012, School of the Arts, Singapore. The body of work is primarily about the transformation of paint as medium to one used to create music. The work uses images to generate a musical composition in four movements. Each movement takes a different set of images, and using an algorithm designed and programmed by the artist, transforms them into a musical soundtrack without further input from the artist. The video can be seen here.

“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.
