"When I was a kid there was a show called Words and Pictures, which had a nice opening animation. I’m definitely a picture guy, and I like to create forms and images that stir a narrative in the viewer. I love watching movies and TV. When you used to buy the paper, the section I went for first was Arts and Entertainment. I like art as entertainment, and ideally, like when you leave a good movie, I strive to have something of what I make linger in your mind. WARPARTY covers a range of themes across a variety of mediums. We really do live in an age where it’s everything all the time, and this exhibition is no different. There’s race, there’s porn, there are heroes and monsters (my own). Most of all, I like art and exhibitions that let us see how that artist looks at, and makes sense of the world, and that is what I’ve attempted with WARPARTY." - Philjames, March 2017.
