This event has ended.

Sikkema Jenkins & Co. presents an exhibition of paintings by Merlin James.

James’ latest exhibition demonstrates the breadth of his practice, but also its complex coherence, interspersing recent works with ones from across his career (ranging back to the 1980s).

Recent paintings on semi-transparent supports, with quasi-traditional picture frames created by the artist and integral to the works, extend James’ long-standing exploration into the nature of painting. His various erotic, topographic, architectural and abstract ‘motifs’, and his sources in earlier art and photography, all remain in evidence, functioning both as elements of aesthetic experiment, and as a celebration of, and poetic – sometimes elegiac – testimony to, human experience of the world.
