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).
