James Clarkson lives and works in Shefﬁeld, England. His work explores the idea of assemblage by using found objects and material, selected for their connection to speciﬁc moments of art history. This investigation becomes a means of identifying the slippages in time and meaning that occur when an object or idea assumes its own formal language outside of its original context. Clarkson’s works negotiate the deﬁnitions of painting and sculpture, refusing to settle upon clear categories and therefore occupy a precarious position, ever liable to shift and change. James Clarkson was selected as one of Modern Painters - 100 Artist to Watch 2012. Forthcoming exhibition "Degrees Of Separation" at Galerie Jeanroch Dard in Paris form June 20th to July 31st - 2013.
