Jimmy does not
limit himself to one style, yet his paintings are unmistakably and
distinctly his own. he invades the sensitivities of the viewer
with a provocative combination of movement and vivacity of color
and light, creating a superb mixture of poetic images, evoking a
deep satisfaction, be it excitement or tranquillity.
This collection of paintings can be likened to a lesson. The
viewer is also the participant and becomes enlightened to the
myriad colors which exist in nature - the purple and pink of
twilight, deep, almost sinister darkness of ravines in mountain
ranges - light water reflections - the bright sparkling power of
sunlight - colors of which we would previously be unaware. The
changing transience of movement of water, evaporating mists and a
million other things of natural beauty which are interpreted by
delicate impressionism or powerful statements.
Jimmy signs his paintings "Prabhakara" which is his
Sanskrit name, the interpretation of which means "Store of
Light", and we have here more than 40 pieces of that source
of light in the spirit of Nature.
