Oxfordshire-based artist James Gemmill has a wide-ranging artistic career, working in film, television, and design, as well as in the more traditional context of gallery artist. He has been commissioned large works in the cinematic world, including the recreation of sections of the Louvre for The Da Vinci Code; the theatrical set of the film Anna Karenina; the reproductions for
The Last Vermeer; and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, to name but a few.

James studied at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, and at the University of Boston; after which he received a Fulbright Scholarship to study at the Royal College of Art in London.  His work is held in a number of prestigious collections in different countries. Most recently, Gemmill’s work was exhibited at The Mall in London; and his latest exhibition – Triple Exposure – was at Old Brompton Gallery, South West London in May 2023, together with artists Gavin Lockheart and Adrian Pennink.

This exhibition at New College is a preview of a larger project that Gemmill is working on, using Oxford architecture at night as his inspiration.

Oxford Festival of the Arts is grateful to all the University of Oxford College Chapels, Libraries and Archives, who have granted us access to towers and rooftops, cloisters and crypts, for this project to be possible.
