James Derwin

James Derwin Contemporary Artist

Through an alchemy of invented techniques and mediums I strive to create very powerful artwork of brilliant physicality.

In 2008 I graduated in Fine Art BA (Hons) at Kingston Univeristy.

Summer 2009 I was on the installation team and steward for the Antony Gormley exhibition 'Field for the British Isles' at Torre Abbey.

Summer 2010 I was tasked with coordinating the stewarding of T.A.M.E.D exhibition featuring Damien Hirst, Richard Long, Paul Caldwell, Mike Nelson, Heather Jansch and Mariele Neudecker.

Curator of 'Immersive Worlds' The Contemporary Fine Art Exhibition 14th-26th April 2011.
This exhibition sets a real president in drawing interactive and multidisciplinary artwork to Torbay!

Summer 2011 'Beyond Boundaries' Contemporary Art Exhibition, The Spanish Barn.

Winter 2012 'Contemporary Art exhibition', Cockington Court

Easter 2012 'Affirmation': Affimrative Art Exhibtion, The Spanish Barn.

2013 'Meltdown', Bristol.
This solo show was situated in the bustling Quakers Fryers district of Bristol. This high-impact exhibition featured hot wax paintings exploring the theme of MELTDOWN. Focusing on the physical and mental properties of the wax medium and artist. All the paintings were painted in a hot greenhouse using heat-guns and hot irons. Although the process was brutal it actually created beautifully finished paintings with a high gloss tactility, sexy enough to stroke.
