Artist's Statement

Laura James' work is widely collected and exhibited. Represented by Bridgeman Art Library for more than a decade, her images have been published in numerous publications and media.
“Her women are full-breasted, of solid build, spirited, and sexual. Identified within biblical or contemporary narratives, James’s women are leaders in the home, workplace, and community. Their activities extend beyond those usually associated with women of a particular experience: they fly, lay on beaches, swing, and entertain. In leisure time scenes, romantic encounters, and portraits, James depicts her feminine subjects in the world in which she and other women like her live. Her attention to the many frames of a woman’s life are likened to artists Leonor Fini and Faith Ringgold (1930-).”
