As one of the last living Pop Art pioneers, James Francis Gill expertly captures the American Dream in his stunning new collection of serigraphs. Merging iconography with startling colour, he is inspired by magazines like Time, Life and National Geographic.
Painterly in style, James’ art transcends the parameters of the genre and has been likened to that of Francis Bacon. Working with montage effects – which he terms metamage – he applies his skills as an architect to utilise computerised software as a drawing tool. Once the design is printed, he uses it to influence his original pencil sketches before applying acrylics to the canvas.
James explains: “Everything changed with The Beatles. They are one of the biggest things in music – second only to ‘the King’, Elvis Presley. I tried to capture the feeling of their music.”
