James Epps lives in Norwich

In my practice, the physical qualities of the materials and location are instrumental in forming the work, be it folding paper to create a shape or intersecting the architectural features of a space with a line. For the large scale works I have made in-situ, the site shapes the drawing and the drawing engages the viewer with the site.
