Terrance James Jr. is an interdisciplinary artist whose work uses photography and sculpture to construct narratives that explore the speculative in relation to the genetics of Blackness. His work builds on a visual language rooted in science fiction and historical revision, that engages with ideas of mythology, metamorphosis, post-humanism, materiality, and disembodiment. James' practice revolves around the capacity to build worlds in which he uses the notion of “the other” to speculate his own existence. While alluding to the literary and the cinematic, he attempts to forge new avenues to render Blackness, be it through portraiture or figurative abstraction, all while exploring his own mythos.
He is based in New Jersey and New York.
