"Like all the best art, Nathan James’ paintings challenge the idea that beauty is a universal term." - Jake Chapman
Bleak comedy and personal tragedy sit uncomfortably close together in James’ characters, which draw on both the failed industrial background of his childhood in Ontario, and the fantastical world of cartoons, characters and the golden age of Hollywood, which has long fascinated him.
Combining an almost old-fashioned, painterly approach to his art with very modern ideas of representation and humour, his subjects are captured in various states of disintegration, mutation and grotesque evolution. Creepshow is at once, a deeply personal and voyeuristic document of lives, habits, problems and people who contemporary art often overlooks.
