About the Artist
Channeling his love of music & film, passion for art history & artists, and interest in pop culture & world events, Jim Wright creates paintings that explore the nature of creativity and originality in various fields of human endeavor. This quality is amplified by a painting process in which Jim does not utilize brushes but instead templates out all of his shapes in acrylic paint and collages them onto wood panels to create his imagery. In making paintings in much the same way one would construct a jigsaw puzzle and by layering shapes in silhouette one on top of the other, he gives sculptural dimension to his surfaces. The results are visual feasts that sample cross-sections of American culture as seen through the artist’s eyes.
