About James Giddy

South African-born James Giddy completed a BA (Fine Art) at Curtin University and has expanded his practice to include painting murals throughout rural WA and NSW, as well as in South Africa and Indonesia. Through the medium of painting, Giddy is able to push and pull emphasis, abstracting and glorifying spaces, encouraging the viewer to reconsider a subject and look beyond a single point of focus. Giddy’s use of ambiguous landscapes and grounds, allows the viewer to bring his or her own contextual references and associations to the work, often providing a platform to reconsider thoughts on the everyday.
