At Dallas Art Fair, Louise Alexander Gallery Offers an Impressive Array of International Art
Anthony James is a sculptor, painter, and performance artist famous for setting fire to a Ferrari in a birch forest and entombing the ravaged car and trees in an installation called Kθ (2008). His practice incorporates a variety of industrial objects, steel vitrines, aluminum sculptures, detritus, and wall-mounted installations, his use of vitrines drawing comparisons to Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons. James is fixated with speed, mechanization, and the search for new practices to reflect themes of death, destruction, and rebirth.
British, b. 1974, based in New York & Los Angeles
