James Oram is known for his satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions.
This new series of drawings, sculptures and paintings are typically deadpan in their humour. Recurring themes and thoughts pervade his storytelling capturing his view of the world.
Oram’s ideas find form across moving image, sculpture, drawing and installation. Yet, for all the diversity of his practice, his conceptual intent and interest is a rich vein running through all his works, whether they be sparse and autobiographical line drawings or bold concrete sculpture of words already heavy with meaning. James Oram provides a compelling mix of surface simplicity and darker undercurrents exploring the small, introspective battles of individual existence.
