About James Hedge
I am a figurative painter, concerned with observational drawing and painting and I have a particular passion for Landscape Painting. When fully immersed in painting nature it is possible to sense wonder and timelessness. Nature manifests as a constant breaking wave, fresh, without beginning or end.
Landscape Painting is intensely practical. You have to get to your location and commit yourself to the process. It is a full-action, it can’t be done half-heartedly. It involves all the senses and when it goes well it is very pleasurable, and carries considerable significance.
I moved to Devon in 2003 after graduating from Glasgow School of Art and since living in the southwest I have created a series of portfolios, mostly landscape and figurative/portrait painting.
I also work with schools, hospitals and museums running projects i.e. Murals, Animation, Printmaking.
