James William Murray – Realia


  • Books


Realia is a small edition book publication that documents a research project/exhibition with Brighton Centre for Contemporary Arts in 2021.

The book is dos-à-dos bound (back-to-back), containing two sections, which have different page counts but are printed on different papers to create a balance in terms of weight and thickness across the publication as a whole.

The first section features colour images of five object-paintings [Untitled (James) I-V]. The second contains installation images and a transcribed conversation between my dear friend Tom Laver (Assistant Curator of Southampton City Gallery) and myself. This includes an in-depth formal analysis of the works in the first section and a broader discussion of the subjectivities underlying my practice methodology.

This publication was generously funded by the University of Brighton Doctoral College.
