The Arts Company presents Nostalgia For The Familiar featuring new paintings and drawings by artist Jim Jobe. The exhibit opens during First Saturday Art Crawl Downtown on June 3, 6PM-9PM; continuing through June 23, during regular gallery hours, 11am-5pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
In Nostalgia For The Familiar, Jim Jobe’s work holds consistent ties to themes of connections, interconnections, and perception. Vacillating between pure abstraction and an eccentric combination of abstract and representational elements, Jim’s work often includes interpretations from nature, observations on perceptual awareness, and a keen interest in the use and influence of structure as both a natural phenomenon, and a unifying visual element. Primarily a painter, Jim works in several disciplines and mediums. The corresponding imagery and symbols that emerge in his pieces, both personal and universal, contribute toward creating work with an intuitive appeal that is intriguing as well as accessible. “Jim’s work feels simultaneously familiar and completely new. His usage of familiar natural elements juxtaposed with pure abstraction create a viewing experience that is unparalleled. We are so excited to introduce this unique work to Nashville” says Gallery Associate Aaron Head.
