Richard James: Beachcomber as Shaman | Artist Documentary

This 30 minute documentary delves into the life and creative processes of Richard James, a visionary assemblage artist renowned for transforming found materials from the natural world into profound works of art. Our film explores James' unique artistic journey, revealing how the recurring themes of astronomy, religion, natural history, and biology intertwine to influence his distinctive work.

We follow Richard to the Outer Hebrides where, guiding us through the stunning landscape, he talks us through the process of collecting and curating found materials. In a moving interview he discusses his profound relationship to the natural world and his desire to honour and show respect to the flora and fauna that we so often take for granted.

We then travel back to his Northamptonshire studio where he selects, combines and transforms these materials into art. Through time-lapse sequences showing the creation of a piece from start to finish, we witness some of the incredible technical processes that he uses to make his constructions, many of which take over three months to complete.

We visit a major exhibition of his work at Goldmark Gallery and James talks about the pleasure it gives him when people connect with his work.

Our film attempts to open the door to an understanding of Richard James' complex and beautiful assemblage art, celebrate his contributions to contemporary art and inspire viewers to see the beauty and interconnectedness of the natural world through his eyes.
