Painted from a sculpture by James and represents the futile struggle to separate one's self from their not so desirable attributes. It highlights the importance of self awareness. The two individuals depicted as a single organism will never be able to separate themselves without destroying the whole. The choice of self acceptance over inner turmoil will allow the two components to grow as one.
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.
