James Hallinan is an artist based in Liverpool who primarily works on canvas using oils, acrylics, and pastels. James’ work has been featured in galleries in Ireland, the UK, and Mexico. James holds a BA in Visual Communication and a PGcert in Fine Art from the University for the Creative Arts London.
In his latest series of works entitled “Rooms” James deals with themes surrounding heightened periods of emotions experienced during social engagement and the effects it has both on the mind and body. Using the body as a focal point in his work, James creates a visual language that externalises these internal experiences, placing them in a room to convey isolation while also creating a positive visual holding space for the body to sit in.
Everyday items from the home and found shapes taken from his surroundings repeatedly appear within his works to symbolise both reflection on and understanding of the cause and effects of social anxiety and its importance in dealing with it.
