This solo exhibition by English artist Alexander James is his first in London since returning from Russia four years ago. For three decades James has tirelessly explored the painterly mechanics of water as his primary medium. We will present previously unseen works from ‘Vanitas’, ‘Rosae’ and ‘Dissolved Sadness’ – the critically acclaimed Moscow exhibition of 2014 – alongside a new body of work ‘All Icons Are False’, a collection of unique prints presenting a gothic homage to the stained glass window for the 21st century.
