Hi – I am James Brady, an artist/curator based in Merseyside, UK.
As an inter-disciplinary artist, working in a variety of mediums I endeavour to explore the poetic complexity of our symbiosis with places, environments and ecologies. Very often my work addresses, abstractly, what might be commonly perceived and all too often misinterpreted, as an anthropocentric distinction between the ‘natural’ (organic) and the ‘human-made’ (synthetic).
My independent curatorial practice in the field of ‘arts and ecology’ is an integral extension and evolution of his artistic activity. An openness to inter-disciplinarity and experimentation are at the heart of my approach. In recent years I have curated exhibitions and collaborative projects with organisations such as Liverpool Biennial International Festival of Contemporary Art, London 2012 Cultural Olympiad / BBC and CIWEM (Chartered Institution for Water and Environmental Management). Currently I am an Associate of the CIWEM Art and Environment Network.
I am the former Co-founder and Curator of High Tide UK, an independent, non-profit environmental arts initiative. Also, I occasionally work under the name of Gaia Project.
