BLOOM BASH Featured Artist: James Peterson
James Peterson is a Los Angeles based sculptor and designer. Graduating with a BFA in sculpture from Kendall College of Art, James' artistic evolution features fluid and dynamic work that focuses on the immersive interaction between organic and mechanical motifs. His sculptures are derived from his exploration of nature and are abstracted through a modular process, using elements from past work as a point of departure for new forms to evolve from referencing cellular growth. James' endeavors: visual effects, set design, automotive prototyping, product development, sculpture, furniture, interior design, among many others, have further cultivated his approach of melding art with technology and sustainable resources.
James has exhibited internationally, has been featured on contraption-based television shows and films, as well as private and public art installations, including Burning Man and the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. He operates his own design and fabrication house, Art + Contraptions, and was employed at the Southern California School of Architecture for nine years, specializing in teaching materials and digital fabrication.
