Merlin James

Bridge, Buildings . 2012


+ Kerlin Gallery

In recent years Merlin James has made paintings often on semi-transparent supports, and with picture frames that are integral to the work.
These quasi-conventional frames, and the stretcher bar structures partly visible through them, may be fabricated from humble, seemingly salvaged materials, pressed into service as 'fancy', high-art objects.
Extending James's long-standing investigations into the nature of painting, the works continue to feature his particular erotic, topographic, architectural or abstract motifs – images that both function as elements in his aesthetic experiment and build to a poetic account of human experience.
