While you’re at the LA Art Show, we recommend stopping by Bert Green Fine Art (BGFA). Grey James will be featured in their Solo Projects booth (#827).
“Grey James’ paintings and mixed media works are concerned with the examination of specific motifs. Many of his core subjects are repeatedly and rigorously selected: the male nude, lemons, the sky, the sea, the horizon. At the center of the work is the idea of Nothing. As the artists observes: theres a lot going on in Nothing. As banal and monotonous as that appears, there are deeper meanings that touch on age old experiences of solitude, simplicity, and the truth found in silence and the observation and contemplation of the world. Simple works presented without pretension are tremendously powerful.”
