Natassja-Cait James

In the course of last three years, I have engaged with contemporary art areas of sculpture, painting, ceramics and textiles. I have formed a deep connection with textiles as an expressive medium. My work draws on the sustainable art practices of artists India Flint and Cara Marie Piazza to explore natural plant dyeing and eco printing. Passion for creativity and politics including feminist and environmental perspectives underpin my work. The final body of work responds to the concept of the Anthropocene and my relationship with my sister, and ideas related to exchanges between generations, protection and the power to make a difference.
