James Guy Eccleston

3 - 27 March 2019

For his new show with us here at Ffin y Parc, James has made another beautifully painted and meticulously rigorous collection. Mundane, unexceptional, even broken objects are always posed and painted precisely, and are treated with great care and seriousness. This deliberate juxtaposition of subject and approach encourages us to think about the nature of skill and art, and the very meaning and value of painting itself.

 

James was born in 1972, and trained at Bourneville College and Wolverhampton University. He studied under R O Lenkiewicz for eight years.

 

Ar gyfer ei sioe newydd yma yn Ffin y Parc, mae James unwaith eto wedi creu casgliad manwl, disgybledig a phrydferth. Mae gwrthrychau cyffredin, anhynod, drylliedig hyd yn oed, yn cael eu gosod a'u paentio'n fanwl-gywir, ac yn cael eu trin gyda gofal a difrifoldeb. Mae'r cyferbyniad bwriadol yma rhwng testun a thechneg  yn ein annog i feddwl  am ansawdd medrusrwydd a chelfyddyd, ac ystyr a pwrpas paentio.

 

Ganed James ym 1972, a cafodd ei hyfforddi yng Ngholeg Bourneville a Prifysgol Wolverhampton. Astudiodd gyda R O Lenkiewicz am wyth mlynedd.
