James Barth is a visual artist who works primarily with painting and digital media. James works with motifs and devices drawn from snapshot fashion photography and technosexual imagery. Their work investigates problems of the feminised body, queer theory and technosexual imagery in the construction of the transgender narrative. Through the use of photography and self-portraiture, the work oscillates between an introspective reflection on James’ physicality and an outward statement challenging heteronormative dogma evident in technosexualised imagery.
In 2015 James graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, and had their first solo show at Woolloongabba Art Gallery titled, Otonoaroid. James was also a finalist in the Churchie National Emerging art prize in 2015, and has been selected for the 2016 Redlands Konica Minolta Art prize in New South Wales.
