Jim’s art hangs in collections in New York, San Francisco and Hong Kong. He has studied art domestically at the National Academy School, the New York Academy of Figurative Art, the Salmagundi Club, and the Art Students League and internationally under Martine Vaugel in France and Timothy Hawkesworth in Ireland. His artist’s statement:
Art is a medium that EVOKES. This word comes from the Latin “To call out” My abstract art may evoke in you a feeling, a thought, a memory, or some similar experience. I lay paint, shape colors, add texture, dig, expose, layer over, pull brushes, and push palette knives until ” delight” happens to me. I have no idea what my delight might evoke in you. The process is intimately hilarious. “This is awesome!……this is tricky….this is crap…….I am crap…..this might be OK…….this is awesome!”
