Todd James
‘Business as Usual’

Sep 23, 2013


Todd James’s current exhibition at Galería Javier López is his second solo show Spain. In this exhibition, James presents a variety of works from numerous of his series and themes. Business as Usual – the title of the show – refers to the artist’s perception that, despite recent apocalyptic fervor, the status quo maintains its dominance throughout the world. War machines rumble on, pirates can be seen on the horizon, women lounge poolside, walls get written on… This is James’s milieu, all represented in the form of large scale acrylic paintings, cut sheets of paper, marker drawings and installation. These works can loosely be seen as a time line of his work, from early subway painting to his gallery and museum work.
