The Painters Brain

James Olley

The sculpture is intended to express the translation of the creative mind and how a painter experiences and decodes the world. Through the richness of forms, gestural and geometric, the enchanting sounds and smell of colour, the painter is transported into a sublime transcendental space where ideas are expressed. In his studio work as a painter, James Olley explores syntax, translation and the language related to abstraction. For this piece, The Painter’s Brain, he was inspired to represent the idea further, and translate it onto the 3D sculpture made with mixed media and collage.
