We are pleased to announce our participation at UNTITLED Miami. The fair will run from 29 November - 3 December 2022. Bode Projects will present a solo booth with Dana James. You are welcome to visit us at booth B11.
Dana James creates a spectrum of pastel toned colours which creates a note of contradiction in darker, vivid fields of color in fractured multi-panel constructions. Her work oscillates between energetic, impulsive strokes, at once dark and powerful, then combines a matt-coloured poetry with a determination of drawing in straight lines and forms. Her process involves a combination of acrylic, ink, oil and charcoal; with encaustic painting which involves wax, fabric and resin. James imagery captures the abstract by deconstructing her materials into discrete elements and reforming them into new compositions.
Dana James (b. 1986 in New York) is a contemporary artist that lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Since graduating from the School of Visual Arts in 2008, her work has been exhibited extensively and can be found in private and public collections around the world. James is represented by Hollis Taggart Contemporary in New York City, as well as Bode Projects in Berlin, Germany. Most recent solo exhibitions include Something I Meant to Say (2021, NY) and Otherwise All Was Silent (2020, Berlin). James was featured as one of the "Top 20 Artists Shaping the New Decade" by Daily Collector in 2020, in which her work was described as “simultaneously dark and feminine, creating worlds marked by duality.”
