"Best new exhibition in London." London Evening Standard
"In a time where digitisation plays an ever-increasing role in our life as the primary vehicle of communication and knowledge sharing, the work of Alexander James comes as a timely and insightful commentary on the Digital Age and the concept of personal identity in today’s world." 1883 Magazine
"Weaving between mediums of digital collage, paint and fabrics, James tells a story that is not just his own, but that of his peers, his neighbours, his city; not only of a dreamlike past but of an overwhelmingly digitalized future." Coeval Magazine
