James Green was born in Philadelphia in 1956 and grew up in the rural Warminster section of Bucks County. His youth was surrounded by abandoned barns, old farmhouses, and open fields which influenced the subject material of his later art. Jim’s remarkable career is reflected in the numerous awards, exhibitions, and his teaching history. Along with his wife, Betz, Jim is a featured artist and guest speaker at the historic Phillips Mill.
Why does an artist change his style and approach to painting over time? What innovations can be learned from the great artists in the past to help inspire the creation of new techniques or styles within their own work?
The developments I have been exploring within my paintings to create a more interesting style using, distortion and expression with a new way of using the application of paint, and variation of brush strokes to create an image were the subject (does not have to look right but feel right).
I will show a few of my paintings to show how they have evolved as I have made new discoveries.
But as all artists know, the creation of art is a never-ending process of imagination, so the journey to change just keeps on going.
