JAMES CROWTHER
Jan 7 - Feb 27, 2021
Cutting the figure from the background denying the audience any other narrative or context to inform them, rather they focus entirely on the sitter, emphasising physical differences in how we all portray ourselves to the world
It is through Crothers’ meticulous attention to detail and his skill at “capturing” his subject, that the sensitivity of their inner psyche is revealed. For his new series, his source material has been gained directly from each sitter via photographs screen-grabs, social media and any socially distanced way available to him. He has also painted key workers, who have faced the pandemic head on, as well as referencing newspaper cuttings archival photographs all of which inform his portraits.
