James Cross’s sculptural arrangements explore the conversations created by the interactions of objects. His works seek to provide an atmosphere, a basis for questions to arise. The multitudes of forms, which sit together in conversation, seek to figure each other out as much as they seek to provide a reason, initiating both object-object and object-viewer dialogues. The works aspire to slow the viewer down in order to reveal signifiers of their coded narrative and highlight the effect our relationship with objects has on our interactions with each other and our sense of identity. James has lived and worked in London since graduating from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art.
