On James Rawson’s site, the last line of his artist statement reads, “So on we go, round and round on our big fat merry-go-round while James puts up the mirror to our pathetic world of consumption.” His paintings try to make commentary on a divided society fiending for escapism through postmodern pop culture. Sex, violence, death and greed are regurgitated vices for a hypnotized society suffering from a disabled vigilance. Rawson makes mixed media paper collages to act as sketch references for his paintings. He lives in Norfolk, England.
