During the PRESENCE PAINTING performance, James always makes a series of small drawings on paper with the still fresh paint from the MATRIX painting (200x170cm). He made it in the presence of the invited model. Generally, he produces this series after the model has left the workshop.The papers are then placed on the ground in front of the MATRIX hung vertically on the wall before being photographed.
