James Jarvis :: ‘Objects in Space’

posted by Marcroy May 29, 2013

James Jarvis is returning back to Beach London on the 6th June for his second solo exhibition titled ‘Objects in Space’, which consists of a series of large-format, freehand airbrush drawings by the London-based artist. All of the drawings feature the Sphere, an abstracted, archetypal every-character, engaging with large geometric objects in a series of real-life urban environments. These locations are a selection of ‘spots’ made famous through skateboarding, and the character’s struggle to manipulate these objects mirrors the skateboarder’s re-appropriation and re-interpretation of architectural space.

In recent years, the Sphere has been a primary focal point in Jarvis’ work; a distillation of his continued interest in the creation and refinement of a minimal ‘ideal’ for a cartoon character; most significantly in his 2012 project, Spheric Dialogues, a series of 380 cartoons in which the Sphere responds to a series of philosophical conundrums.
