About James Warren

I am a street-level artist in Chico, and a BFA graduate from CSU-Chico. Build-up of entropy...order from disorder...higher, 'low brow' work...what else? My main website with statements is Coldiron Arts at http://2-james-warren.artistwebsites.com/ it's www.coldironarts.com

I can present somewhat of a sarcastic sense in some work, but I am included in the intellectual self reflection. I have witnessed my share of circumstantial and social ugliness, and, so, do sometimes make work that is intended as homage-to-beauty. This is counter to the main trend of academic and perceived-as-relevant art that is often abject or political in nature. Equality, fecundity, de-colonialism, neo-colonialism, self-determination, practical eroticism and assertion are significant trends.

Art figure models are all 18 years old or older with edit & release paperwork signed. Art models demonstrate creative courage to begin the transformative processes of figurative expression. Geopolitical and economic class constructs still suggest that labeling people according to ethnicity, race, national origin and gender are important, but I'd much prefer to do do away with that as much as I can in my art. Each person is a person, first, and not a representation of a labeled stereotype. I do, sometimes, use descriptive terms on my art in order to compete in the marketplace, but am seeking to describe people by additional, non-political terms.

Prints using combined vintage photos and my own digital photos are sums of raw art materials in re-contextualization. These types of compositions more formally might be seen as derivative-works-for-the-present-generation-and-marketplace. My input as an artist is to choreograph the disparate images into one picture plane, where no one photo carries the whole meaning of the new work. Vintage photos are, essentially, materials re-evaluated in meaning and aesthetic for contemporary display. Use of vintage photos might be met by the following concerns: 1. Reformatted from film print to digital scan 2. Only a percentage of a new composition 3. Not presented in their initial contexts 4. Images are in personal collection 5. Do not solely carry the full intellectual meaning of a new composition 6. Aspect ratio is changed, in some instances 7. Display new characteristics due to time and previous curation 8. Images used may be only extant examples 9. Presented in different scale than the originals.

These new compositions are, essentially, copyrightable, derivative compilations using public domain works without any known publication and reproduction restrictions. The public domain images retain their current status. Including my own design and images in these compositions strengthens the depth of 'new composition/compilation/derivative work.'
