James Mey Exhibit in the Library
Gallery 1 Wilson (near Skybridge)
thru June 2012
Exhibiting works throughout Seattle and Bellingham for ten years, twenty-eight year old South-African born artist, James Richard Mey brings diverse and dynamic work that challenges the way we view the effects of our instant culture. Influenced by Grant Ko Takemura, Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol.
These are a few works in a series of paintings that began with two pieces entitled, "Gun," and "Lipstick," designed and transferred onto McDonalds wrappers on wood.
James Mey calls his work, "Controlled Frustration."
The world is always in the present.
My work has become more controlled.
My work has controlled my frustrations.
New works have been recently added to the display, come check them out.
