The Stories Behind Jim's Sculptures . . . Read More
“I have spent most of my life living by the sea, witnessing the toll on nature and humankind caused by the demise of once abundant fish stocks. My sculptures, whether figurative or semi-abstract, express my deeply-held views on the environment, the frailty of the human condition, and the resilience of the human spirit.
“Human nudes and fish often appear in my work. The fish represent the vulnerability of nature. By combining the human forms with fish, I suggest the vulnerability of humans as a species, and, also, our responsibility to earth’s ecosystems. With the naked body, I express the temporary and vulnerable yet also joyful nature of life. Recent advancements in the science of genetic engineering and cloning, and the moral dilemmas they present, have added another layer to my continued exploration of the complexities of the interaction between humans and environment.”
