Emerging from the Mist

Benalla Art Gallery and Arts Project Australia proudly present Emerging from the Mist — an Autumn Gallery Shop exhibition by James McSporran.

James MacSporran is an emerging artist working primarily in painting and drawing on paper and canvas. MacSporran has worked at Arts Project Australia’s studio since 2016. He staged solo exhibitions in 2020 and 2021, has completed public art commissions, and been featured in group exhibitions in Australia, the USA, and Hong Kong.

Inspired by trains and cityscapes, stylistically his art practice embodies a blend of abstraction and graffiti, resulting in fluoro-coloured and densely layered artworks that he creates from his imagination. Often synthesising text with abstraction, his work conjures references to mazes, street art and old-style arcade games.
