James Canning

As the artworks imply, I was living at a low point in my life, isolated and depressed. The paintings serve to illustrate this in images rather than words. Working on the paintings, I insisted that each part of the overall, each figure or scene etc, must relate to all the rest in some way. This was an emotional style of painting rather than a thought-out verbal description. Difficult to describe but it was the source of my artworks. It ended when I started RIT/NTID and had people all around me.
