Jim Carey

Jim studied Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art from 1977-1981 where he was taught by David Donaldson, James D (Jimmy) Robertson, Geoffrey Squire, Barbara Rae, Duncan Shanks, Neil Dallas Brown and Alexander (Sandy)Moffat. It was in Scotland where he first discovered his love of landscape painting. He settled in Cornwall in 1982 and now lives sometimes in France and sometimes in Cornwall. His landscape paintings portray a strong sense of place and fascination with the natural world and ever changing light, colour and atmospheres of the seasons.

In recent years Jim has been painting the completely different terrain of the French countryside, mostly the coast of Brittany, Ile de-Re and the Languedoc, responding to a warmer more vivid colour and light. A light, which is quite unlike the cold light he knew years before when studying Fine Art in Glasgow. In this work there are more shadows, bluer skies, sometimes brighter, more intense colours reminiscent of an impressionists world. Since March 2017 he has been working from the Atelier Prisme in Nantes as part of a collective. Here he has been producing paintings inspired by the City. Jim’s work is an ongoing exploration in paint. His landscape paintings are not only a representation of a particular scene but contain an expression of an emotional response to those elements caught in a moment in time.
