James Cooper: A Fly Doing Figure Eights

James Cooper: A Fly Doing Figure Eights

Please join us for the opening of ‘A Fly Doing Figure Eights’ by James Cooper.
A Fly Doing Figure Eights will present a series of paintings, drawings and sculptures which interrogate the semiotics of contemporary image culture and explore the potential of imagery to be used as a form of language. Motifs are accumulated in order to instigate associative readings and allow for paths of ideas and allusions to intersect and produce new understandings of narrative.James Cooper is an early career West Australian artist working predominantley with paint and drawing. Cooper graduated Curtin University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Fine Art. Cooper has exhibited in the ‘Got it for Cheap’ exhibition series, at Shopfront Gallery, Paper Mountain and has been shown in London, Paris, Stockholm, Copenhagen and New York.
