About Life in West Roxbury

West Roxbury, located in Boston’s southwest corner, was originally part of the town of Roxbury and home to a 19th century experimental, utopian community frequented by such notable writers as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry David Thoreau. Today, West Roxbury is known for its civic activism and youth programming. Its tree lined streets and mostly single-family homes give this city neighborhood a suburban feel. Centre Street anchors the neighborhood’s business district, which consists of restaurants, banks, and shops. Residents flock to Millennium Park, a former landfill that has been converted into 100 acres of trails, ball fields, and picnic areas.

Artist’s Statement

“I like the idea of being an artist out of time, somehow transported to this century like a modern day Rip Van Winkle.”

James studied traditional painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, which has a long and great history of figurative painting. He loves art of the Victorian era, particularly the academic painters in 19th century France. His paintings follow the Classical methods taught over a hundred years ago, that are now out of vogue.

Even though his work at first glance seems very traditional, his influences are anything but. Even his most figurative paintings will have something of the bizarre or grotesque.

His most recent series is pure pop! Pop and nothing but the pop! Pop goes the Pez. Andy Warhol had his soup cans, James has Pez. What could be more fun than Pop Art? When it’s Pez! Forget the soup cans – Pez have come to life to delight and entertain you.

Pez makes the world go round.
