Collection: James Bates

In 1985, James received the Major Henry Scholarship and worked closely with the British Council in Stockholm. From the summer of 2016, James has worked exclusively with Rebecka Eriksson in this body of work that incorporates a process of both painting, photography and textile work to produce 'paintings' of a highly textural, complex and original nature. This work has already been exposed to both critical and public attention. Rebecka Eriksson is from Örebro and has a background as a seamstress and graphic designer.
