Hills We Once Walked In

Thyme James’ recent work has seen her depart from her previous subject of the human figure, instead turning her recurring themes of intimacy, memory, and connection to the natural landscape.

Enamoured with colour, mark-making, and repeated imagery, Thyme works from a combination of field drawings and memory or imagination of the Scottish and Cornish landscapes to blend past, present, and potential futures. This coupled with her instinctive and cyclical approach to creating allows her landscapes to morph and evolve organically, producing unique environments. Her resulting ethereal landscapes aim to find familiarity within people, invoking a sense of nostalgia and, hopefully, identifying with something from their lived experience.

Originally from Cornwall, Thyme James studied Painting and Printmaking at The Glasgow School of Art, during this time she also attended the Academy of Fine Art Vienna on an Erasmus+ Scholarship. In 2019 she received the New Graduate Award from the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts and was shortlisted for the Scottish Drawing Competition 2021.

2022 saw Thyme receive a grant from The Hope Scott Trust providing her with the support to reintegrate traditional painting into her practice and produce a new body of work for her first major solo exhibition 'Forever, and a Day'. Upon graduating she joined the Glasgow Print Studio, allowing her to maintain her screen printing practice where she continues to produce work despite having relocated to Hertfordshire in 2022.
