In the Midst of Imagination's Haze

In James Jean's work, oriental elements border tightly knotted accumulations of paint and translucent shapes in a heavy atmosphere. The brightly coloured flowing lines are contrasting with the elements fighting against a strength drawing them downward. Don't be fooled by the sweet colours, you might get lost in a dark haze...
