James Wade Jr

London, England, based writer Samuel Cornish well describes my work and methodology in the catalogue Iron Working Drawings. Cornish states, “James Wade sees his work as a celebration of the landscape shaped by vernacular, agricultural and industrial architecture.” He continues by stating that I am “particularly interested in the accumulated evidence of man’s activity in these areas.” As an artist, it is very important for me to address the concept of a work in context of material, location and intent. The appropriate material is chosen for the content of the work rather than forcing ideas into a singular, comfortable medium. I consider myself a landscape sculptor. My work embodies a sense of place and incorporates extensive research and observation of the locales that inspire my creativity.
