Marlborough London is delighted to present Tuck Shop For The Wicked, a solo exhibition of eight new works by Alexander James.

James’s practice draws on a variety of material references such as family letters and photographs, found memorabilia, and ancient artefacts, as well as personal conversations, emotions, and passed-on memories. Mixing real and imagined experiences, James understands his canvases as a visual cache to both past and present, merging elements of portraiture and abstraction to collate the history of his artistic references with the history of his family.
