Hi Vis Fumes
James Hornsby

6 August - 4 September 2021

August 2021 sees the launch of Hi Vis Fumes, a solo exhibition of all new work by Brisbane based, multidisciplinary artist, James Hornsby. Each work originates from a photographic image using traditional studio techniques – however, due to a deliberate misuse of photo editing techniques, Hornsby disrupts and dismantles the photograph, producing a result that offers viewers a surreal interpretation of the original image.

With a knack for artistic experimentation through contemporary material translations, Hornsby’s work has been described as explosive, bold and hyper-real – these latest pieces see a refinement but also an expansion on the distinctive edge that Hornsby harnesses in his practice. Honouring previous bodies of work, Hi Vis Fumes will encompass a variety of elements, expand on series of experimental prints but also be the launch pad for new vibrant and vivacious works on aluminium and steel.
