This is Not Art



Critical Animals

Philjames’ practice involves the reinterpretation of the narrative of time and place through reworking familiar images ranging from old masters to religious iconography. Delicate and detailed paintings are subtly applied onto vintage prints challenging the viewer to look beyond the surface image and into the depth of the artists imagination. Through this process the artist creates a world for his audience which is familiar yet also bizarre. Toying with images and concepts from popular culture these interventions are at once accessible yet demanding of contemplation.
