James Huffer

All my work starts with some perception from an experience I’ve had, something I responded to visually and thought about until I was ready to express it as a print or an object. Almost always, my titles will point in the direction of where the work started. But my work is non-representational, so the titles can be confusing unless you accept that they just indicate a starting point in the real world – where the print or object has ended up is another matter.

What both my two- and three-dimensional work share is the process of giving life to something that exists only in my visual imagination, something where the components have all been pulled free of any familiar meaning. That’s it. When you’re looking at my work, you really just have to say: “Do I like it? Does it “work for me?” Because if you look for a meaning in my work, you’re not going to find one. They are meant to be purely visual experiences, but as the observer, you may find your own visual experience.
