James Lamar
Ceramic, Steel, Techno Sculpture

Artist Information
James Lamar Petersonís studio is like a cross between a scrapyard and a taxidermistís workshop. Sculpted bird carcasses are lined up, row after row, bellies up, while their welded claws are stranded on a separate bench.

Nearby is a messy tip of computer innards, old radios, wires and printers. In effect , this is the palette James uses for the extraordinary techno sculptures he creates out of discarded electronics.

From his moody oxidised ceramic birds and animals to the cyber-structures shaped like living things, Jamesí creations as a professional sculptor are as far removed from each other as his new life is from his old.

For before discovering he might want to be a professional artist at about forty, when he took a few art classes in Perth, James had been a research psychologist and psychology lecturer and teacher.

While the initial few years as a semi-professional artist were lean, James has no doubts that he has made the right choice.

These days, his days works are exhibited in galleries through-out Australia.
