James Drinkwater: A Day by the Sea

18 January - 12 February 2020

Informality is thrilled to announce ‘A Day By the Sea’, the second showing in the UK of contemporary Australian artist, James Drinkwater. The exhibition introduces a suite of recent paintings reflecting the artists’ compassion about intimacy, place and memory and the archive of history, on the Australian coast where he lives and works.


James Drinkwater is an artist whose work reflects personal fragments about history and our emotion relative to experience. Interested in the land of our richly textured world and the found objects attached to an archive of history sensitive to a place, Drinkwater constructs a response working across, poetry, collage, sculpture and painting to draw his own language from love, intimacy and memory.
