Artist's statement: Jim has been painting landscapes, people and everyday things, primarily in oil, for almost thirty years. He finds his inspiration in the mundane and ordinary which he encounters in his everyday walks and contacts with friends and strangers.
His work features very high contrast, the use of subdued primary colors and a careful organization.
Exhibitions have included the Maine Art Group, Winchester Art Network, juried shows at both the Duxbury Art Association and the Concord Art Association where he was awarded a prize for his oil painting “Portrait of Julia.”
Artist's statement: Pieces by Dallio Ceramica are grouped in the manner of haikus, or meditations upon distant events drawing closer, rippling through the artists' process in ways which are not always predictable given the kiln-ceramics juncture. "Dallio Ceramica" denotes an artist in collaboration with kiln staff and the kiln itself.
A presentation on process, the inspiration of Japanese art, and these etudes will be held during the last week of February. The artist can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
