About

The works of sculptor James Capper separate into what he calls ‘DIVISIONS’: EARTH MARKING, CARVING, OFFSHORE, MATERIAL HANDLING and AVIATION. This self-deployed genealogy encompasses the artist’s passion for hydraulic engineering. Less obvious is the journey of experimentation and refinement Capper is undertaking to perfect machines that sculpt on his behalf. Able to transcend componentry and serve as recognisable works of art in their own right; the intermittent functionality of sculptures make evident this parallel quest for automation – an evolutionary endeavour, as concerned with process and outcome as it is with form.

James Capper has exhibited at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Manchester Art Gallery, Saatchi Gallery, London and featured in The Armory Show, New York (2013). He won the Royal Academy’s Jack Goldhill Award for Sculpture in 2009 and in 2011 was the recipient of the Royal Society of British Sculptors Bursary Award.
