In collaboration with New Elements Gallery, Anchorlight Wilmington presents Changing Lanes by James L. Williams. For James, art has been his way of claiming “home” in his different surroundings. In Changing Lanes, James explored new worlds, organic form, layered color combinations and ideas for reimagining landscapes.  This work allowed him to understand that as we move, we have to redefine the term “home” and create the space and place where we can live wholeheartedly. 

James begins each work by exploring the world around him and taking photographs of buildings, outdoor environments, and interior spaces that inspire him. Working primarily with acrylics and collage, he meticulously maps dense, layered color, ink, tape, paper-weaving, and graphite to create multiple dimensional renderings of his new worlds.
