EXHIBITION: CARLA JAMES - A BRISTOL COLLECTION

EXHIBITION: CARLA JAMES - A BRISTOL COLLECTION

26th May 2023

See a variety of views and interpretations of Bristol and its surrounding areas as seen by the artist Carla James. This collection is a decadent and colourful portrayal of sights in Bristol that capture the imagination and delve into the dreamy and abstract.

Carla’s journey as an artist began at an early age. She grew up in a small village in the English countryside. The village sits on the top of a hill with magnificent views of a city on one side and rolling hills, valleys and lakes on the other side. Spending time within these environments had a huge influence. Carla also had influences from the Caribbean island of Trinidad where her family are from, with ancestry originating in India. Carla spent time in Trinidad once a year enjoying Caribbean and Indian cultural influences in a rural and tropical village setting. The village was surrounded by an abundance of vegetation including tropical trees, flowers and wildlife with luminous colours and sounds of the rainforest. Carla went on to study Art at the University of the West of England, graduating with a BA(hons) in Drawing and Applied Art. carlajames.co.uk
