James Cummins

Born in Liverpool, James now lives in Berlin. His highly collectable work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is represented in many public and private collections worldwide. We have a special relationship with the artist and have sold his pieces for over ten years. 
 

He combines painting with materials weathered by the passage of time. His recent wall sculptures are made with hospital sheets, fishing nets, rope and wire netting and having lived in Indonesia and India are steeped in the philosophy and metaphysics of the East


Einstein said: “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all art and science.” This artist opens our eyes to the transience of matter, with traces and marks that time leaves behind, unerringly questioning our own mortality.
