Since graduating in Fine Art Painting at Manchester School of Art in 2004, James has lived and worked in Manchester, Cambridge, Bristol and Tokyo. His current body of work has been created over the past three years and draws influence from his time in Japan as well as building on previous interests in maps, plans and patterns. The pieces on show now are examples of his intricate, mixed-media technique that has attracted international collectors and continues to engage and inspire audiences.
Moss' early work was based on plans and infrastructure, illustrating repeated acts and referring to accumulative construction. This led to a series of temporary wall drawings and installations where content developed from abstract lines and forms to automatic figurative imagery. Living in Tokyo, Moss's focus moved to incorporate natural subjects and more fluid structures while maintaining the intensely textured surfaces of his earlier pieces.
