③ Artist:

February James

February James’ paintings are about personal transformation and creating a visual language designed to shape conversations around perception, meaning and identity. Her portraits’ confrontational gazes demand to be acknowledged and refuse to perform for the viewer. Her work investigates the complexities within Black identity from her own experience, probing cultural transmissions and oral histories.
