Jamie Banes: Urban Areas’ Three-Dimensional Energy

Artist Statement


My attraction to the energy of urban areas inspires a playful, 
excited examination of the frenzied systems around me. 
 Highly active environments such as ports, stations, airfields, 
or sub-street infrastructures feel like childhood experiments 
with Tinkertoys and Lego bricks, 
or voyages into Richard Scarry's seemingly chaotic worlds.  
I’ve been exploring my awareness of these arrangements 
and my position within them, making 
associations with anatomy and physicality, and allowing 
myself the opportunity to revisit a youthful mindset 
that seems more and more fleeting.
