“James Lieutenant has developed a series of unconnected images and words. The hyper colours and layered surfaces of his process is all that connects them. SUPER uses the traditional exhibition format, paintings hung on a wall. James’ work motivates questions about the artist’s idiosyncratic tendencies when dealing with images. The space the work sits in is complex, confused, disorientating and brutal. Lieutenant is an image-based artist living and working in both Sydney and Canberra. Favouring painting and printmaking, but often incorporating installation elements into his work, he has presented artworks in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and New York. He was awarded the 2013 Linden Postcard Prize by Linden Centre for Contemporary Art (Victoria) and recently completed a professional studio residency with Megalo Print Studio (ACT)” – James Lieutenant.
