In recent years Jim has been painting the completely different terrain of the French countryside, mostly the coast of Brittany, Ile de-Re and the Languedoc, responding to a warmer more vivid colour and light. A light, which is quite unlike the cold light he knew years before when studying Fine Art in Glasgow. In this work there are more shadows, bluer skies, sometimes brighter, more intense colours reminiscent of an impressionists world. For several months in 2017 he was working from the Atelier Prisme in Nantes as part of a collective. Here he produced paintings inspired by the City. Jim’s work is an ongoing exploration in paint. His landscape paintings are not only a representation of a particular scene but contain an expression of an emotional response to those elements caught in a moment in time. This Exhibition is mostly made up of recent plein-air explorations in France.
