Grey James is an artist currently living in Los Angeles. He has been with Bert Green Fine Art almost 20 years and has an extensive list of collectors both here and abroad. Grey’s paintings and mixed media works are concerned with the examination of specific motifs repeatedly and rigorously selected: the male nude, lemons, the sky, the sea, the horizon. His central theme of Nothingness touch on age-old experiences of solitude, simplicity, and the truth found in silence and the observation and contemplation of the world. Simple works presented without pretension are tremendously powerful.
