Fernandina-based artist Dolf James has remained at the forefront of North Florida sculpture while tirelessly contributing his ideas, talents, and time to galvanizing Jacksonville’s burgeoning creative community. A year ago James began translating his steel desktop-size steel maquettes into immense structures constructed from durable, lightweight industrial tubing which offer clients dynamic display options. The scale and orientation these sculptures are ideal for outdoor placement and the angular lines and lustrous finish have proven a striking contrast to a variety of landscapes. James recently became interested in presenting his assembled geometries in a different manner, off the ground, and created a series of Wall Hooks using the same materials and concepts.

James, the recipient of the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville’s 2014 Arts Innovator award, works out of his airy studio in Riverside’s CoRK Arts District (an artistic hub of work and gallery spaces which he co-founded.)
