Member Spotlight: Jim Kaufmann

I was searching for something different today and I found it in the works of Jim Kaufmann. He's technically a writer, but claims to have found the visual arts again after a long hiatus.

We couldn't agree more. Jim's art is a mash-up of acrylics and intricate pen work, with a touch of cut-and-paste collage. So many attempt this style and fall short. Jim does not. His work looks improvised and accidental but it somehow all falls into place.

I really dig your work. I enjoy the playful nature and find the drawing on found substrates interesting. I have several friends who have been experimenting with using found objects/papers to create work on and I keep finding myself drawn to the idea. Heck I\'ve spent most of my life doodling on papers, pants, shoes...anything I can find. Nice work!

I agree with with the "primitive" comment. They remind me of some native american art I have seen.
