Biography

Brisbane artist Matt James’ art practice is focussed upon landscape painting and drawing. Having grown up in rural West Wales, Matt’s love of the outdoors is the key driver of his dynamic works.

Based on pencil and oil sketches created in situ, from photographs, and from his recollection of locations, Matt’s dynamic representations of place arise from a synthesis of memory and sense impressions. Considered observation of the shape of the landscape, the movement of clouds, the perception of distance and the shifting of light inform Matt’s thickly textured approach, allowing him to move between representational and abstract responses to places.
