Limited Means is a series of drawings by Ann-Marie James created by using one single ballpoint pen. The artist based the collection of work on the idea of restriction, both conceptually and literally, by combining the humble medium with the notion of the fragility of the human form. Anatomical references from Gray's Anatomy result in depictions of bones and organs that are at times evocative of traditional engravings or even the patterns on Spode china.
Artist: Ann-Marie James
Danse Macabre, an exhibition of work by Ann-Marie James, contiunes at First Floor Projects in London through January 30, 2010.
