What would life be like without chocolate? Balance in my life includes a healthy daily dose of chocolate. In this piece ink is deliberately used outside of the main image evoking the organic nature of harvesting these pods.

Getting to Know James

Much like his art, James Rees is a mixture of the old, the new, and the unique. Having received an MFA in printmaking, it should come as no surprise that many of his drawings and paintings reflect a layering process. This process opens up unexpected and interesting results. James constantly attempts to find meaning and see patterns of beauty in overlapping, entangling events and the endless parade of images. James likes to say that if art is nothing more than the shadow of humanity, he loves to linger in the shadows.
