James Rawson
Date 14.01 MMXIV
British artist James Rawson plays with the boundaries that lie between painting and collage, challenging our preconceived perceptions of popular culture. Greed, over-consumption, fast food, sex selling everything, the spectacle of life, the ubiquitous nature of advertising and TV as the drug of a nation are all important issues to Rawson. These issues are all addressed through a kaleidoscope of motifs, typography, and symbols appropriated from popular culture and through a mixture of mediums.

Rawson explaining his works says, ‘Perhaps you don’t like what you see, the bawdy reality, the cheap thrill, the constant accumulation of sweet things, processed things, plastic things. unnatural things: but it doesn’t take away from the fact it’s the truth.’
