|Jim Corp and his work.|
Jim Corp had a formal art education and sees his work in the tradition of abstract expressionism. He mentioned Mexican Muralist Rufino Tamayo and Paul Klee as influences.. In this show there is a variety of work shown. The main part consists of botanical/floral close-ups scaled large (4x5 ft?). They are in pungent colors, few in number and relatively graphic. Think of an organic color field painting. There are also Rothko influenced works in the show. I can't help but think that Jim's pallete was also influenced by is extended stays in other countries and cultures. There are also prints in the show. Jim is a master printer as well. I looked at some recently printed work, and it is beautifully designed and executed.
If you go to see this show, make sure you go into his studio, which is adjacent to the gallery.
Jim Corp's show, Macro/Micro will be up at least through April 12th.
