James Clarkson

James Clarkson's work explores the idea of assemblage by using found objects and material, selected for their connection to specific moments of art history. This investigation becomes a mean of identifying the slippages in time and meaning that occur when an object or idea assumes its own formal language outside of its original context. Clarkson's works negotiate the definitions of painting and sculpture, refusing to settle upon clear categories and therefore occupy a precarious position, ever liable to shift and change.
Born in 1987, Liverpool, James Clarkson lives and works in Sheffield, England.
