Throughout history artists have used the protagonists of predominant myths to convey emotions and ideas deeper than the material objects themselves.
With this collection of new artworks James explores some of the main characters of our modern mythology, contrasting well known animated characters with sacred imagery to begin a dialogue about what is sacred, what is profane, and how they overlap in our modern society.
“Similar to how geometry underpins the material world, the myths we consume create patterns of thought and behaviour that shapes our inner world”.
Join us for the exclusive private viewing on Thursday, September 14th, from 6 pm to 9 pm at the exquisite Red Eight Gallery.
