James Rawson’s Postmodern Paintings Piss On Pop

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.
