James Page

MA work

James Page’s work is an exploration of our correlative human condition: between the corporeal and the metaphysical. In an examination of our physical substance, Page continually asks us to reassess our social predispositions towards matter. His work oscillates between images of erotic stimulation and the temporal condition of our physical state. This duality between vitality and atrophy in Page’s work is an admission — and, indeed, a celebration — of our earthly existence. Consistently in his work, Page seeks to erase material distinctions: clay becomes mud, or flesh, or bone and, incidentally, neither is cause to be appalled, or to applaud.
