James Powditch


We visited James’ studio in 2011; an unremarkable warehouse frontage  in an equally unremarkable semi-industrial Northern (as I remember) suburb of Sydney. The contents were anything but unremarkable; a modern Bessa-Brick boys cave of tools, timber offcuts, demolition detritus and op-shop castoffs – walls hung with massive assemblage pieces that reminded me of Warhol’s fixation with repetition. We talked about Festo power tools and his plans for turning this cavernous workshop into his home; fast forward to 2014 and low and behold what turns up in this month’s Habitat magazine – James’ magnificent and now finished home/workshop complex.
