Content Aware: James Wilde
James Wilde (b.1993) is an artist living and working in London. In 2016, he received a First Class Honours BA in Photography from the London College of Communication along with winning the Photoworks Award for his series Tears of Stone. His work enquires into the subject of vulnerability and solitude, the lost intimacy of the poetic, and the notion of coincidence that affixes the autobiographic to the photographic.
As a means to realign, and thus to move forward, these photographs bring to the surface notions of a father’s lost intimacy, whilst overarching themes of emotional distance, isolation, and fear form as a skin around this body of work. It is through this desire for reconciliation that interwoven threads of writing and sculpture anchor these personal histories to evoke the searching of an acceptance through the processing of pain, deciphering generational differences and addressing the reoccurrence of failures.
