About the Artist

Painting the local landscape has always held a fascination for Jim. His latest work is inspired by the urban and natural environments around his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The constant changing interaction of local architecture, land, water and sky is a continual source of inspiration and challenge for him. Currently, Jim is painting a series inspired by the Japanese word Komorebi which describes the way that sunlight passes through the leaves of trees. Jim’s process varies sometimes working outdoors directly from nature, to studying his own photographs, working from memories, and creating constructed realities. The specific visual qualities of his subject directs his painting process.
