From Jim:

My father studied art with Arshile Gorky and I was born in the same hospital where Franz Kline was born, which may explain my affinity toward Kline and Gorky. Although I have three college degrees, I grew up in my father’s studio and whatever I’ve learned about art, I learned there. As for the work itself, each canvas evolves through several stages, or “edits,” and takes 6 months to a year to complete; the titles are used both for thematic reasons, as well as for compositional elements in the work.

Come by Thursday June 14, from 6 until 8 pm to see Jim’s new work.
