Artist Statement:

Thyme James is a Glasgow based inter-disciplinary artist, whose practice is based in expanded painting, combining traditional notions of paint with film-making whilst also working in autographic mediums namely printmaking, painting and drawing. Her broad practice primarily focuses on the female form, both as subject matter and as a conceptual tool to explore womxn’s place within the arts, inclusivity, sexuality and object-hood within a digital era. Dominant themes within her work stem from gender theory and philosophical thought.

She graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2019 in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking, having also attended the Academy of Fine Art Vienna on an Erasmus exchange programme in 2016/17 and Plymouth College of Art 2013-15 for a pre-degree course. She received the New Graduate award in 2019 from the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts for her degree show .
