SYMPTOMATIC an Exhibition by James Whyham

James is in his third year of a Fine Art and Professional Practice BA (Hons) degree at Blackpool Art College. The works on display are experimental pieces produced during the first and second year of the degree.


James states that;:-
"Mark making and gesture is my main area of interest and I have been investigating how gesture, mark making and surface communicate or define identity and how individual decisions form and influence wider social and political contexts or visa versa. My mark making is an attempt to trace the fluidity and transient nature of consciousness and an attempt to avoid the tendency of language and image articulation to form certain mindsets and fracture perception into a series of moments."
The work is on display at Village Walks ArtSpOt, Poulton le Fylde, from 24th September to 30th October, Monday to Saturday, entry free. The entrance to the exhibition space is from the Teanlowe Centre carpark, between the Post Office and Ethel Austins or from Queensway.
