Jim Harris was born in London (1968) and lives and works in Amsterdam.
"My work comes from observing my immediate surroundings. I paint on location with oils on linen and at times ink on paper. My choice of subject matter is always an intuitive one. What I paint is merely a vehicle to create an image.
The objects and spaces have in themselves no intrinsic value; that is decided on the picture plane. I always have in mind the observation of Sir Stanley Spencer, a painter I greatly admirer, who said:
"When I see anything, I see everything". It's an ambition of mine as a painter to emulate that artistic vision.
It is perhaps an absurd quest but I strive to discover the universal in the detail.”
