Amazing form depictions by artist James Roper who lives and creates in Manchester. I love the vividness and abstract feel of his artwork.

I quote part of his eloquent statement I found in his site: “I have explored these subjects in my paintings through the structure and landscape of the body, how our bodies move through our environment and their physical relationship to architectural forms as well as the immediate folds in the fabric of our clothes. Also the fetishism of inanimate objects and the fusion of body and object or self and other which is apparent within many religious practices especially in Eastern Philosophy.

By constructing abstract bodies formed from multiple elements with a variegated surface of protrusions and recesses my paintings mimic the complex bodily structures found within nature. An ordered chaos in which a bigger whole is made up of smaller interconnecting parts like the microscopic cells of the macroscopic organism.”
