… and the long drips in light rose and blue of the OpenFlow style of James. The white of the canvas is an important component of his painting. «The great painting does not require a lot of paint but a lot of vacuum » James Arax. As Art critics say, James creates a kind of cartography of the person, playing with colors, drips, words as a record of the painting session with this model from Sweden encountered in a London art gallery.
