James’s work involves the use of various mechanical devices, which have been adapted to explore the effects of natural forces such as gravity and centrifuge. His exploration in paint is driven by his observation of the effects of high pressure, force and gravitational pull on the intrinsic qualities of the paint. With each act of creation, his experimentation gives impetus to the next. Adapting and developing the control and randomness of the act he hopes to readdress and push the boundaries still further. “My overall aim is to develop new techniques for producing art and paint effects.” He says.
