Press Release

SANDRA GERING INC is pleased to present TODD JAMES: Supernatural, an exhibition of new paintings and drawings, and the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.

For this exhibition, James features his women: a colorful cast of warriors, sunbathers, sorcerers and girlfriends that have populated his work from its earliest years through today. Sometimes animated, sometimes relaxed, usually scantily clad and almost always humorous, these characters have proved to be emotional touchstones in a narrative that has balanced comedy and tragedy since the beginning of the artist’s career. The paintings and drawings are laced with metaphor and do not shy away from off-color humor. On occasion, women even find themselves morphed into magical hybrid characters or completely abstracted, as if spells had gone wrong and figures reassemble. Their range of expressiveness belies the heavy metal/fantasy atmosphere that has become one of the signatures of James’ work.

Todd James has shown internationally since 1998. His work continues to span the fields of fine and commercial art, with forays into costume design, large-scale installation, and work within the music & television industry. Painting exhibitions have predominated since 2007, with one-person venues in New York, Tokyo, London, Madrid, Brussels, Melbourne and Copenhagen. James lives and works in New York.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm. For further information please contact Laura Bloom at 646.336.7183 or laura@sandrageringinc.com.
