Jim Kociuba




         Jim’s subjects alternate between tightly cropped backlit deconstructed trees and quite realistic waterscapes. The common thread in his work is how Jim portrays light that passes through as well as bounces off the surfaces of these subjects.


            His painting techniques are intuitively decided by the urgings of his subjects. The painting surfaces vary from thin transparent  glazes to heavy layers of impasto.  Nature and technology are represented with organic and geometric imagery.  Jim's paintings create a lively world of sparkling light with dappled brushwork.
