Cole M James is an interdisciplinary artist. Their work uses both figurative and abstract images, sound and scent to amplify the subtle ways perception can collapse and expand time.

“I make work as a negotiator, navigating the African Diaspora, circling the expanse of queerness and fumbling through womanhood. I am interested in the intersections between digital production and the analog collecting of lived experiences. “ Born in Chicago, raised in Moreno Valley California , James works and lives in Los Angeles CA.
