“Jungle” by James Creighton

This body of work is comprised exclusively of drawings. Like many artists during this year of lockdown and social distancing, I have found myself working more at home. As a result, the works have become more intimate in scale and personal in content. After several years of producing art work that required considerable space, machinery and time I have come to welcome the change to a more immediate method of working.

Historically, my work has been primarily non-objective and abstract. This newer work allows for representations to make their way into the image. I am working in an improvisational way, taking full advantage of the medium to allow for conceptual flexibility. As a result, a narrative of sorts has begun to develop within the drawings as they relate to one another. My interest is to continue in this vein of drawings as it has now become a more personal vehicle for communicating, as well as exploring aesthetically and conceptually.
