There be Spiders in this Web....
This piece acts as an observation of our species' initial steps into the digital age. While there have been meaningful breakthroughs in the way information is shared in society providing more opportunity and a platform of shared knowledge, we need to concede that there is a darker side that invades privacy and allows for targeted surveillance by authorities or otherwise.
James is a Painter and Illustrator based in Adelaide South Australia. He was professionally trained at the Panorama Art Group where he spent thirteen years learning the intricacies of Oil painting. This is also paired with a Bachelor of Visual Communication with a Major in Illustration at the University of South Australia.
With keen interest in the development of society in the twenty-first century, literature and respect for History. James has developed a style inspired by the Old Masters combining traditional oil painting techniques and tonal realism with narrative and allegory. The result is a conceptually motivated brand of surrealism that explores the human condition, begging the viewer to exercise their own free thought in interpretation.
