Dancing On Lava In A Moment Of Decadence
11.10.2020 – 07.11.2020
In Dancing On Lava In A Moment Of Decadence, the second exhibition at The Columbia organised in partnership with Roman Road, Alexander James presents a selection of his latest paintings, teeming with idiosyncratic figures and imagined scenarios that reveal an intimate and reflective space of his making. Through processes of abstraction and fragmentation, James’ multifaceted and vibrant pieces interweave elements of his memories and introspections into new constructed realities, while at once drawing on the mythologies of people and the concepts of success.
