My practice is about boundaries. I believe The rise of the idea of “posthuman” had, in many ways, shaken the fundamentals of dualism. To think that there is an absolute binary relationship between human and machines, nature and culture, object and image, identity, gender ... etc, is simply missing a lot regarding the quintessence of being. And I believe this “missing” is where contemporary art needto engage. Thus I like to work around blurring and challenging these boundaries.I work with image, live art and various forms of media.

I am currently working withbiometric data and computer language, and how the entanglement of the two creating a condition where I am in between physical and non - physical existence, me becoming together with the machine.

James Barnor

Pioneering photographer

James Barnor was born in Accra, Ghana in 1929. He began work as a photographer in Accra?s Jamestown district in 1947 where he set up the Ever Young studio, taking photographs of the local community. He also worked as a photojournalist for the Daily Graphic and Drum magazine, which led him to London in the 1960s. Beyond his studio photography and press commissions, Barnor also has an extensive archive of street reportage. After spending the 1960s in Britain, Barnor returned to Ghana at the end of the decade where he helped open the country?s first colour-processing laboratory. In 1993, after 24 years in Ghana, Barnor returned to London where he continues to live today. His varied body of photographic work documents the shift towards modern living as experienced by black people in both Africa and Britain.

I am a self-taught artist who has lived in the borough for twenty-two years. I only started painting and drawing in 2013 and have found it to be a liberating experience for me personally.

My interest is in the play of colour and texture as they revolve around nature and people. I use digital software to re-work sketches, painting and photographic images to explore the play of colour, texture and line that presents itself. It's a multi-layered approach whereby original sketches and photographs may be re-worked, re-painted and then re-worked a number of times till completion of the final image – a process that can take many months. My aim is to delight and surprise the viewer – for them to see and feel an abstraction of the familiar re-presented from a new perspective.

My messages are pointing out on people consciousness, to be free and more tolerant, to have good spirit. Beauty is in simplicity, not in complications.
