Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, please say hello and welcome to one of our new resident artists, Mister Jim Pilston.
After studying Theatre Design and Illustration, Jim worked as an Illustrator for many years. Over time his illustrative work began to morph into three-dimensional pieces, using (wherever possible) found materials that are repurposed and recycled.
From these maquettes, the artist creates mixed media and papier-mâché figures which explore folklore, legend, myth and childhood – telling tales from near and far, with a leaning toward some of the darker fables from the European woodlands and cobbled streets!
Jim’s work is bold, colourful and playful, full of intrigue and mystery – he relishes creating something magical from a variety of materials that may be discovered in skips and bins up and down the country.
His work is powerfully influenced by the stories, pictures, films and children's television of his Cotswold childhood in the 1970s.
