Exhibition runs 20 – 27 January 2018
Opening Friday 19 January 5 – 9pm
For his first solo exhibition, Another point of you, James Cross presents a new body of sculpture
and installation that investigates the subtleties of human responses. Enlisting a plethora of
sources, he examines the conversations created by the interactions of objects and images, and
encourages their evolving dialogue. Each work seeks to provide an atmosphere, a basis for
questions to arise.
Much of James’ practice hinges upon the understanding and misunderstanding of imagery and
ideas. James is intrigued by the repetition of forms within visual culture that have signifying
importance in the development of identity. He is interested in how objects and images can be
resonant in contributing to our idea of identity, and how the distortion of such forms could
provide an alternative outcome. Subtly challenging the known, to provide a sense of the
unknown, an ease coupled with an unease.
James Cross studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art and currently lives and
works in London. Upcoming in 2018 he has residencies at Can Serrat, El Bruc, Spain, and
Kunstnahuset Messen, Alvik, Norway.
