Ayrshire artist Jamie Cooper opened his new solo show at the Harbour Arts Centre this week.

Running from Friday, January 17, until Thursday, February 27, the Newmilns artist returns to the Harbour Arts Centre with his new exhibition GOD FEEL! after a nine-year hiatus debuting his new collection of sculptural art objects

Working across a variety of mediums, the artist’s new exhibition creates an immersive space using artificial lighting, infinity mirrors and uncanny art objects which resemble cultural artefacts to provide his audience with an alternate, art version of the future.

He said: “I’m excited to debut GOD FEEL! especially in Irvine as the harbourside and the Ayrshire coast is where I spent a lot of my childhood, after moving from Manchester to Pennyburn as a child.

“I work across a variety of mediums to create immersive, and sometimes alien environments that mix sculptural objects with light using humour and language as

mechanisms to provoke deeper critical engagement.”

Jamie considers himself as a Futurist inspired by human behaviour and his new exhibition offers a space for people to escape with art objects influenced by the Dada art movement, science fiction and philosophy.

“My aim is to immerse the viewer in a new cultural landscape using a combination of sculpture and light, providing respite from the pressures of capitalism and the complexities of our current political landscape.”
