Vincent James

Vincent draws from an ever-expanding catalogue of objects appropriated from cartoons. Biography After completing his MA at Goldsmiths in 1999, Vincent James has exhibited nationally and internationally. His work is part of the Touchstones Art Gallery Permanent Collection, and Frederick R Weisman Art Foundation Collection, California. And visitors to Bury’s Light Night over the last three years will remember his site-specific installations projected onto empty shop windows. In January 2016, Vincent will present a new body of work developed from his residency at PAPER.
