I always make Xsmall paintings on paper after the large size canvas « Presence painting ». This series of painting on paper of 14 item is associated with the performance Presence painting n°47. This painting is inspired by a French business man who works mainly in Africa and in London where James met him.
James uses the fresh liquid paint left of the large canvas. It is a way of physically linking these two types of creations. Here, We can see on the paper the blue ink of the Waterfalls. James and the model talked a lot about Africa during the session and James had in mind the wonderful Victoria Falls.
