James Fisher

Sugarhouse Work/Live Residency Programme

James Fisher is a British painter and printmaker. His paintings are rich in colour and texture, drawing on the flat aesthetic of relief printmaking to achieve layers of decorative patterning. James presents the viewer with deceptive surfaces – imagery appropriated from pop culture and art history add to his complex and illusory visual language.

Recent solo and collaborative exhibitions include: Flotilla, White Conduit Projects, London (2019); Plaything, Blythe Gallery, Imperial College, London (2017, with Denise de Cordova and James Fisher); Doppelgänger, Eagle Gallery, London (2016). In 2001 James was the recipient of the Abbey Scholarship awarded by the British School of Rome.

Sugarhouse Work/Live Residency Programme
Based on the model of the Fire Station programme, the Sugarhouse Work/Live Residency Programme was designed in response to the lack of affordable space in London for artists to work and live in. The project was developed in partnership with Solon Co-operative Housing Services and the Boss Group and received funding from the Housing Corporation and Stratford Development Partnership.
