As a member of society, you are involved by and large in a very strange business system which divides your day into work and play. Work is something that everybody does and you get paid to do it because nobody could care less about doing it.

In other words, it is so abominable and boring that you can get paid for doing it. And the object of doing this is to make money. And the object of making money, is to go home and enjoy the money that you’ve made. When you’ve got it, you see, you can buy pleasure.

Biologically, there is no such thing as a set requirement to do a set amount of work. We’re programmed to strive for things and to struggle for survival, which itself is one definition of work, but overall, the concept of sacrificing time for money is a cultural construct.

All shits and giggles really.

James Green (British, b. 1989) paints indulgent, abstract images that critique (rather than celebrate) a system that favors the fortunate and neglects the less-so. Rooted in a balance somewhere between fine art tradition and contemporary practice, his paintings often include obscured faces, within spontaneous compositions. The works reject hierarchy and revel in their physicality, showcasing a thick impasto and bold color to challenge the notion of beauty in art. The artist ‘trained’ at Cardiff School of Art, although insists he is entirely self-taught. James exhibits his work internationally, and sells globally.
