Dr. Jim Harold is an artist based in Glasgow. He has lectured extensively in Fine Art within the UK and Europe. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has work in public collections in Australia, USA and UK.
His practice focuses on the way ‘value’, whether conceptual or aesthetic, shapes our readings of landscapes. In particular, those areas of border or marginal lands and terrain vague spaces that lie at the edge or limit between nations (often contested spaces) or those areas that have become isolated, neglected and under-valued.
He is a member of the international research group Creative Centre for Fluid Territories (CCFT), whose projects focus on perceptions of place with particular regard to locations with contested histories and/or ecologies.
