Jim Sanders has been working as a fulltime artist in Brighton since 2001 and has exhibited widely in the UK and Europe. He works predominantly in painting, printing, collage and constructed sculpture, regularly creating artwork, murals, sets and costumes in collaboration with live art practitioners Boca2Mouth.
The new works which Jim has created in our workshop are incredibly vibrant and exciting pieces.
Jim explains, ‘Scribere’ (which in Latin means ‘to write’) was composed from 6 screens. Scribere are initially outpourings, writing without words. Marks based on the very action of writing.
The printing process was approached with the same freedom, an adventure of layering, criss-crossing, an intertwined weave of line and form, creating a suggestion of landscapes and unknown worlds.
The dichotomies of destruction and rejuvenation, fear and redemption are what fires Sanders’ desire to understand the human condition, striving to make sense of our interactions, relationships, the sources and reason for existence. His work has an affinity with primitive, outsider, and the non-traditional western and intuitive arts, sharing their common concern with the universal experiences of birth, love, sex, reproduction and death.
