About the Artist

Jim is interested in connections and how things relate. His Beyond the Canvas sculptures address the concept of gravity as a natural phenomenon by which all objects attract one another. Gravity as a force manifests itself in this new work both visually and physically.

“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe will create itself from nothing.” – Stephen Hawking
