NATHAN JAMES BORN IN KIRKLAND LAKE, ONTARIO.
Nathan James spent much of his life in the Toronto area before moving to London, UK where he currently lives and works. His current series of paintings, Creepshow, is based on the idea of Pessimist Pop.
This “lack” of a signature style makes his art unpredictable, but he might be converging into one thing. In most of his works, all the characters have no face, as if they were not connected with anything, only with their inside. It’s a contrast to a world that is connected 24/7, but the people are only connected to themselves, as he explains: “There’s nothing for the viewer to connect with, latch onto and gain a foothold. It’s as if the blinds are drawn; we’ve lost our peep-hole and can only guess at what’s going on inside by the turmoil being expressed on the surface.” by Clara Moraes Posted on February 3, 2016
