Biography

Alexander James (b.1993, UK) patches elements of the past, the present and the pre-empted future through his practice. His works look to reflectively tell a story about time, manifesting characters and scenarios triggered from childhood memories, projecting facets of past encounters into present existence. Acting as a diary for the audience, Alexander attempts to showcase works on paper documenting his experiences or thoughts, which are later combined and expanded to create the wider narrative, weaving between mediums of digital collage, paint and fabrics. Alexander lives and works in London, UK.
