Description

James Castle (1899-1977) was an American artist who found inspiration in  the detritus of everyday life, primarily in the materials he collected  from his family’s home such as envelopes, packaging, advertisements and  matchbooks. Working mostly with soot, spit and homemade tools, he was  able to create a rich, complex style that was wholly his own. Castle was  born deaf and had limited means of communication. However, thanks to  the support of his family, he had dedicated space, supplies and plenty  of time to make art. Though he did not gain recognition for his art  until the 1950s, Castle’s work is now exhibited in museums and galleries  across the world. - James Castle Collection and Archive
