James Vassallo


I meet Peter in 2014 when we both applied to use a space, a pop up gallery, in The Galleries, Bristol. This ended with me, Peter, Anwyl and Therese putting up an exhibition, Deceive/Disclose, together. Since then Peter and me have exhibited, together with other artists, another six times. I believe these group exhibitions through the coming together of different minds, different points of view and the variety of venues have instagated many interesting conversations which have greatly benefited my practice.

Through my practice I’m questioning and reflecting on the systems of information and knowledge that have and are still influencing my cognition of life. Currently I’m making drawings inspired by the Welsh landscape. I’m interested in the difficulty in representing one’s ‘true’ experience and memories of a landscape, a landscape one goes through every day. But also, how its representation and the understanding of this landscape has influenced the lives of people living within.
