James K-M is a Vancouver-based painter who has, since 1983, created a vast series of hard-edge, optically charged works. These paintings reference primordial languages, the linkages between aural and visual phenomena, as well Op Art—a key historical avant-garde movement.
The question of how the social is contained within abstraction has been raised in many arenas over the twenty-five years since the first of these paintings were made. This exhibition addresses that societal role, while querying the rationales that continue to exist for new work in hard-edge abstraction. – Bill Jeffries, August, 2008

Publication: This exhibition is accompanied by a 24-page catalogue with essays by Eric McLuhan and Bill Jeffries.

    Hi there,

    I like your artwork, cool stuff! I like the repetitious nature of the piece in the local paper, kind of reminds me of my own artwork. Have a look at my site and let me know what you think, it would be wonderful to talk with others that have a similarity in artwork. Talk to you soon I hope, take care!
