Battling the demon drink and with a baby on the way to his love that has walked but recently returned James Kearns is attempting a personal comeback underpinned by a new and exciting art exhibition opening at Cooks Hill Galleries on Friday February 14 6 – 8pm. Exhibition continues until March 10.
Sober for some time now and in the process of reconciling relationships James is committed to becoming one of Australia’s leading painters, being a great father, and staying off the booze permanently. Obvious throughout this collection of work developed for CHG is the representation of his own personal struggles and the possible imminent realisation of his potential as a leading professional artist resulting in a stunning collection of paintings and works on paper that you simply must experience.
Juxtaposed subjects of animals and humans along with conflicting themes of light and dark, masculine and feminine, failure and hope in addition to strong representation of the maternal and paternal feature prominently in this highly engaging and visually stunning show – the emotion, energy, vulnerability and rawness will floor you!
James has strong links to rural Australia. He is currently the artist-in-residence at Moree Plains Regional Gallery. In recent years James has held successful exhibitions both in Sydney and regionally with his work being acquired by the who’s who of the art world, successful business people and celebrities.
In addition to this, strong ties to mentor Ben Quilty - one of Australia’s leading artists - results in this rare opportunity for you to acquire a stunning art work that also has significant potential for capital appreciation in the future. Don’t miss our first and what could be our most exciting exhibition of the year!
