Featured Artist: James McKenzie

James’ work encompasses painting, verse, collage, sculpture, installation, found objects, prose, collaboration and performance. Taoist and Buddhist influence is at the core of his work and spontaneity is essential to his methodology. He playfully explores themes which are often philosophically motivated and draws from personal experience. James graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone in 2017. He has exhibited, performed publicly and lead workshops widely in Scotland at galleries including the Royal Scottish Academy, the Scottish National Gallery, Embassy Gallery, generatorPROJECTS, Summerhall and Orkney’s Pier Arts Centre. In 2021, James looks forward to being the first artist to exhibit with Dundee’s Volk Gallery and to participating in Hidden Door Festival.
