James Roper’s paintings take the fabrics and textures of the Baroque and create new, abstract explorations. Even when he pits these forms against scenic backdrops, these objects create something otherworldly at the focus of the work. Roper was featured in the Hi-Fructose Collected 4 box set, and he was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
“My work explores a variety of subjects from the heightened realities depicted in Baroque art and modern media to the restraint and release of energy found within complex structures such as the human body,” the artist says. “I work in various mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture and film.”
