Artwork Description

Unique Print (one only).

Do you remember your childhood?
Do you remember what you saw?
Do you remember the feeling? The wonder, the innocence?
Do you remember everything or just the important bits?
For P. James Bryans it was a childhood full of daydreams and wonderment. The bush, the stars, the universe and the thousand colours in a single blade of grass. Growing up on an idyllic farmlet in Victoria James spent his days wandering through the bush and giving his imagination free reign. Now, as an adult, he reworks fragments of images from the books and ephemera of his childhood, aiming to capture the fleeting moments that we all remember, imperfect and incomplete, but which we treasure and make us who we are.

All art by P. James Bryans

P. James Bryans creates mixed media prints, digital paintings, and screenprinted artworks. By using popular ephemera and retrospective themes, Bryans manipulates and appropriates fragments of time from the ‘utopian nuclear family’ era, the days of wonderment and daydreams (with the innocence of Enid Blyton). 
In creating these images Bryans touches on various overlapping themes, creating a narrative that can be easily recognized (and remembered) by the viewer.
His works feature coincidental, accidental, and unexpected connections, which make it possible to relive and complement history. Bryans uses a visual vocabulary that addresses many different social issues that have long been forgotten. The work incorporates time as well as space; a fictional and experiential universe that only emerges through the viewer’s own eyes.P.
