Japan is about tea ceremonies, simplicity, elegance, bamboo, zen, lines, balance, and vibrancy. I had the opportunity to spend some quality time in Japan a few years back. It's an experience that continues to influence my art work consciously and subconsciously.   This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

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.
