Anthony James - Studio

Anthony James is a British-born, LA based multi-media artist. He studied at Central St. Martins School of Art in London. He has exhibited at Patrick Painter, Los Angeles, Gavlak, West Palm Beach, Kantor/Feuer, New York, Art Basel, Marc Selwyn, Los Angeles, Blum and Poe, Los Angeles, The New Museum, New York, Spencer Brownstone Gallery, New York and Thread Waxing Space, New York. Anthony James’ first monograph, morphic fields, was published by Hatje Cantz in 2014.

Icosahedrons – the geometric globes of twenty identical triangular facets – were a mathematical experiment in unity used by Plato to demonstrate an ideal compositional system of perfect symmetry in three dimensions. In a twenty-first century gallery space, the glass, steel, and LED structures bring a rigid and gleaming tangibility to the abstraction of the numerical calculation of flawless coherence. James’ objects are compelling approximations, facsimiles of understanding and belief thousands of years old that come down to us on our own terms of modern metals and technological light.
