PROJECT SPACE | JAMES LITTLE | MAYBE THE GRASS LOOKS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE BECAUSE IT'S FAKE

James Little uses gradients and reflective surfaces to investigate the influence of digital media on contemporary culture and the subsequent anxieties of society. Employing the image of silhouetted ferns as a motif, Little examines the relationship between technology and the tangible world.
 
As digital apps and screens increase in prevalence, artworks are frequently experienced via photographic reproduction. In an attempt to navigate our contemporary, often virtual environments, Little uses hand-painted acrylic and glass to reclaim the experience of viewing.  Simultaneously paintings and mirrors, his surfaces are inherently linked to the spaces in which they are exhibited, and to the viewer themselves.
