Jim Kociuba

Statement


 

  

         Jim Kociuba'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.

 

            Jim's painting techniques and materials are intuitively chosen by the visual qualities of his subject matter. His painting surfaces vary from thin transparent glazes to heavy layers of impasto. Nature & technology are represented through organic and geometric imagery.  Jim's paintings create a lively world of sparkling light with dappled brushwork.
