"I always make Xsmall paintings on paper after the large size canvas Presence painting. I use the liquid paint left of this large canvas to make the drawings. It is a way of physically linking these two types of creations."
This series of painting on paper of 18 items is associated with the performance PRESENCE PAINTING N°61. *
*James creates an artistic performance called Presence Painting Performance (3P). It’s a new type of portraiture, an augmented portrait to catch the presence of the model. For each painting James invites a new person-model whose presence inspires him. Since 2005, he has produced 100 unique artistic performances.
