"Nearly The Same Hours Worked" is a series of paintings and prints that are about the melodramatics of shaking a fist at the sky while stuck in traffic on the way to work or throwing a golf club into the air with a feeling of righteous fury after a missed shot.  These moments are depicted in a seemingly naïve way through paint and ink to reflect the naïve anger and fear one feels when they have a bad commute or a bad round of golf.  These works serve to break down that feeling of being inconsequential in the face of one’s own middle or upper middle-class existence.  They reveal how inane these feelings are when faced with these inane situations that vex the figures in the works.

James McPherson (b. 1992 San Diego, California) is an artist living and working in Richmond, VA.  James holds a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from VCU and was the BFA artist in residence to VCUQ in Doha, Qatar from 2014-2015.  After his residency James bought a risograph printer and has since become a part of Clown Kisses Press located in the Museum District of Richmond.
