JIM  KIMBERLY

Jim is a San Francisco Bay Area artist born in Los Angeles California in 1954.  Growing up with the challenges of dyslexia Jim found his most effective means of intimate communication to be through creating art.  Initially inspired and encouraged by his artist grandmother, he continued this language of expression which developed into a life long art career. 

In his early adult years Jim studied under inspirational faculty at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo California.

He excelled at Cuesta and his work broadened and expanded into not only painting but large scale mixed media works including site specific sculpture and installation.  Jim was recognized for his unusual ability to express himself in a masterful and powerful way through the manipulation of materials unreachable to most artists of the time.  After his years at Cuesta College, Jim was offered a scholarship at the San Francisco Art Institute where his large scale politically motivated, often controversial work grew to become nationally recognized.  He continued his education by accepting a position in the Masters of Fine Arts program at U.C. Berkeley.  

 

Jim continues to be a prolific and cutting edge artist who thrives on pushing the boundaries.  Now facing perhaps the greatest challenge of his career and his life, Jim is working on his current series of paintings entitled "I'M NOT DEAD YET."  Three years ago Jim was diagnosed with A.L.S. which has progressively resulted in the loss of near complete mobility.  At present, in spite of this extreme challenge, by attaching a steel "arm" to his wheelchair, he has developed an inventive way to continue his communication through art by creating large scale paintings on canvas. Jim's current body of work transcends process to bring to life pure expression.
