About Jamie


For better and worse, I am a product of American popular culture. I grew up on Star Wars, Jaws, Easy Rider, posters of Farrah Fawcett, and video games. It was through mediated visual experiences like these that I engaged fiction and encountered the possibilities of representation. The imagery I choose captures and catalogues the profound and fugitive moments of my cultural experience while it serves as an autobiographical survey of my evolving aesthetic. My work emerges from the study and influence of art-historical models and technical traditions as it confronts contemporary fiction and modern visual forms.

At the heart of my work is the belief that paint, as a material, carries meaning. I believe that paint gives an image context through its historical, metaphorical, and linguistic implications. Likewise, images carry their own meaning when filtered through the lens of culture and individual experience. My interests reside in this convergence of material and image.
