Teri Saccone visits artist James Marsh, whose transformations of the natural world graced Talk Talk’s records throughout their career.

James at home in Kent, 2018

A native Yorkshireman, James Marsh began his artistic career in the mid 1960s and continues to undertake varied projects to this day. He has worked extensively across the music, publishing, editorial and advertising industries, and masterfully created Talk Talk’s mesmerising album covers; his quasi-surrealistic depictions of the natural world for the eclectic, indefinable band are a true fusion of sound and visuals.

We speak in Marsh’s spacious studio on the Kent coast. He has a reserved manner, yet is clearly energised by his work: art populates his environs, with assorted sculptures, graphics and paintings adorning the spaces. “My work is all around the house. By living alongside my work, it helps me become more objective about it,” Marsh says. “The house is like a gallery in some respects, not only for my art, but also for the various objets d’art and eclectic items I’ve accumulated over the years. I enjoy surrounding myself with things that interest or stimulate me.”
