James Cooper | Bermuda

Born in 1965 in Bermuda,
Lives & works in Bermuda

“I am a maker more than I am a taker. I create or stage all of my images. This can range from very subtle re-adjustments of reality to ‘made from scratch’ sculptures.

In the most basic of terms, what I am doing is observing my life , my world , its component parts, and my reaction to it. Then I am rearranging these ‘parts’ to either understand them better or to try and coax another possible ‘meaning’ from them”.

Graduated in landscape architecture from the University of British Columbia, Canada.
