LANDSCAPE 2015

This first set of drawings by Marcus James demonstrates a phenomenal process of control within a new visual language he has used to reassess the connections between landscape in art and our relationship to nature.

He has imposed a system of rhythmic, stylistic marks to articulate space in landscape creating a facsimile that has been processed through drawing, and reflects the human battle to dominate nature.

Ultimately nature wins through but Marcus James has complete control and has aligned himself with Niels Bohr's notion of art still has a place in opening our minds to the way we see the world.

Landscape 2015 was exhibited from 2nd-5th September 2015 at the Hus Gallery.
