James Eddy

Sculptor and site-specific artist.

   Currently I am studying at Arts University Plymouth on the MA Fine Art program. 

  The main influence in my life has always been a love of nature and a concern for environmental issues. My experiences, as a countryside ranger and as an artist working in education, have greatly informed my art practice with an understanding of nature and human nature.

     I am also intrigued by the Japanese aesthetic theory of wabi-sabi, especially concerning the concepts of impermanence and change in nature and therefore in everyday human life. 

      One artist who I have always admired, is Costantin Brancusi. I try to create the same natural simplicity in my sculpture, capturing the essence of things in a form of visual poetry. A Japanese concept that conveys this for me is, ‘Mono-no-aware’, which in one way can be defined as a sense of ‘Ah-ness...’.
