Title: Rembrandt smiley 1 Size: 50 x 80cm Medium: Mixed media on canvas "I'd like to get involved in this in support of the NHS because there's no better example of how much we rely on them than now. Compared to a lot of other countries, we're incredibly lucky to be able to access health services 24/7. None of us have any clear idea to what extent we may need to call on them over the coming months, so I wanted to do my bit early on in this crisis as a thank you for their widespread heroic efforts at this unprecedented & testing time. Plus, my Mum works for the NHS... She has taken on a new role on the front line as her secretarial work isn't as vital at this time. One person, amongst thousands as we remember we are all in this together" James James Green (British, b. 1989) paints indulgent, abstract images that critique (rather than celebrate) a system that favors the fortunate and neglects the less-so. Rooted in a balance somewhere between fine art tradition and contemporary practice, his paintings often include obscured faces, within spontaneous compositions. The works reject hierarchy and revel in their physicality, showcasing a thick impasto and bold color to challenge the notion of beauty in art. The artist ‘trained’ at Cardiff School of Art, James exhibits his work internationally and sells globally.
