Anthony James

(Britain 1975 -)


Anthony James is a British/American artist based in Los Angeles, known for his monumental and performative sculptures and installations. James graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 1998. His work gestures towards minimalism, materiality, process, alchemy, language, mechanization, and experimentation with light and space. Michael Slenske interviewed James about his work in 2017 and wrote: “Though he claims a lot of his art is about esoteric concerns, death and rebirth, and a certain spiritual energy, he also argues, ‘A lot of the art is in the correction of a mistake or maybe it is the mistake. I’m very open to what comes to me. I feel like certain things are serendipitous.'”
