The Original hand made Art in this gallery has amazing depth and vibrancy in direct light yet maintains the subjects form under lower lighting. Direct a spot or hang near sunlight and enjoy the deep shifting nature of technique. James draws the subject in relief by hand onto the surface of the metal then details with translucent and opiac colors. The paintings radiant and shift with the angle of view. The process starts with grinders and other hand tools to render his subjects, then enhances them with delicate layers of paint and brush work. The effect is beyond traditional canvas painting adding energy. On some you feel like you can reach into them and touch the subjects.
"James: I just love the physicality of working with the raw metal then doing the delicate paint work ! The effect is stunning Reflective Fine Art !"
