Download Artist Statement and Resume
Grey James' paintings and mixed media work reflects his personal experience of changing his gender identity. In part an iconography of yearning, and in part a symbolism of incomplete states of being, this work is rooted in a conviction that the journey is more important than the destination. His work is concerned with the personal experience of the artist: the messy and painful physical and psychological processes involved with transitioning. This is a rare opportunity to glimpse at the way in which this artist's gaze has transformed along with his identity.
