Sloppy James is an emerging artist and beginning freelance designer – poet and writer. He makes art to be happy. He lives to create engaging works that have never been attempted before. Tucked away in his slightly cramped studio in RVA, he knows that there is not enough time for all the ideas.
Story of art:
These particular pieces are part of a project that I immersed myself in for a little over two years. Some said that I had fallen from the planet during this time, but I was there (in my studio) day and night working happily on a series of collages that would eventually evolve into collage-sculptures. I created each on a bottle that I used as a glass canvas, and like the Greek vases of red or black figures, each bottle was meant to be rotated to be able to better understand and view the entire narrative gist or story.
