House of Voltaire's online store remains open!

The safety of our staff, couriers and supporters remain our primary concern. As a result, delivery and fulfilment times may take longer than normal.

We are currently able to offer delivery via courier to most national and international locations. We will shortly resume delivery via Royal Mail, however there might be a slight delay in fulfilling these orders. We are currently not able to offer collection in person. You can still select this option and we will be in touch when these services resume in the near future. If you have any questions or need something by a particular date, please contact us by email.

All sales directly support Studio Voltaire's artistic and public programmes.

About the artist

Ann-Marie James is interested in the way in which found images of works from antiquity and art history might be used to investigate her own responses to individual works, their themes and origins. Through repetition, obfuscation, abstraction and the exploration of material process, source imagery is recontextualised and transformed to produce new hybrids. Her paintings in acrylic and oil are built up through layer upon layer of materials and techniques, as well as references to the history of the discipline.

Ann-Marie James (b. 1981) was born in Buckinghamshire, UK. She currently lives and works in London and Suffolk. The artist studied MA Fine Art at Wimbledon College of Art, London (2010–12); Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design, London (2010) and BA (Hons) Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London (2001–04). Awards include the Artists International Development Fund, The British Council (2016), Derek Hill Foundation Scholarship at The British School at Rome (2013–14), MFI Flat Time House Graduate Award, supported by the John Latham Foundation, London (2012). Residencies include the Wessex Museums Partnership (2018-19) and Kettle’s Yard (2019).

Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.

We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.

The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
