Colour Reveals My Soul
About the artist: James Paterson builds ambiguous machine-like objects with wires and steel rods. This artistic process has led to his being branded an “Imagineer” creating structures by twisting wire and welding rods into shapes that become stories that come to life with splashes of colour. He invites viewers to interact with his sculptures by incorporating moving parts that give the pieces an experiential quality. Memories from the culturally diverse and visually textured neighbourhood in Toronto where he grew up have inspired the wire sculptures he has been creating for almost 10 years. His pieces appeal to collectors around the world and have been commissioned by The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, The University of Cleveland Children’s Hospital, Ohio and the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in California.
