James Tailor brings a sculptural approach to painting, creating his large scale three dimensional structures from paint itself. Tailor’s technique involves mixing acrylic medium with paint, creating sheet-like forms that can be used to envelope, drape, conceal, or expand existing objects. Taking found objects and re-appropriating their history to form new narratives, or creating new forms from blank canvases destined for traditional paintings, Tailor comments on the complexities of human nature, such as identity, hopes, flaws and corruption.  For Tailor, “Whether the viewer considers the final work to be an installation, a sculpture or a painting is really down to themselves, but for me the one constant is paint, and I approach everything I do from the starting point of a painter in terms of colour, balance and composition”
