James Isherwood

James Isherwood (1971, Fall River, MA; USA) is a painter based in Brooklyn, NY. His intuitive paintings combine fluid paint, hard contour, vibrant color, unnatural space and varied textures. His paintings suggest alternative realities within each work, while offering a pre-contemporary approach to landscape painting. The rules of the natural world are eliminated by a technicolor reality, questioning our ability to perceive. These depictions of architecture in surreal landscapes can evoke dreams and timeless memories of place.

In his works, the moon is the predominant element, presiding over and prompting the viewer to seek an understanding, as these are portraits of landscapes that, combined with the architectural structures, create landscapes that root us both to the ground and to the sky.
