If you are in NYC and plan on going to the 2010 Whitney Biennale (begins Feb. 25th), please go to the Whitney Museum Store’s Art-o-Mat machine, and see these new intricate, phantasmagorical works. They continue Jim’s ongoing series of drawings available through Art-o-Mat.

Others pieces from the series are in Chicago, at the Chicago Cultural Center. One of the preeminent cultural landmarks in the United States, the center offers over 1000 unique programs every year that encompass visual, literally, and performing arts. Presidents, royalty, and other prominent figures have visited the center.

Work can also be seen in Minneapolis, at the Chambers Art Hotel. The hotel is a truly unique destination, which is completely dedicated to contemporary art. Throughout it’s rooms and restaurants the hotel displays over 200 original artworks from leading contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst, Ashley Bickerton, and Will Cotton. It has been called the nation’s first “luxury art hotel.”

X Initiative BYOA Exhibition

We are pleased to announce that Jim’s artwork will be shown at X Initiative’s BYOA from 2/3/10- 2/4/10. BYOA is a truly unique exhibition that invites artists in different disciplines into an experimental, curatorial event in a museum quality setting.
The show is located at the former home of the DIA museum, and is inspired by a concept from the legendary curator Walter Hopps.

Jim’s painting “Lost in the Darkness” (pictured above) will be shown at BYOA. This work takes Jim’s esoteric abstractions to a larger scale, and begins to imply a strange narrative element to his body of work.

Jim’s work will be on view Wednesday Feb 3rd after 5 pm. We hope to see you at the show!
