Enjoy the serene landscapes of painter Jose Jimenez, who celebrates the beauty of the marshlands. See more of his work by visiting his website.
Through my paintings I wish to create empathy. I want to evoke a peaceful, tranquil, relaxing sensation for my viewers that lingers and stimulates memories. I think the beauty in art is helping people be mindful and grateful for their visual experiences.
Words are often not sufficient enough to express feelings and I want to be able to show these emotions through my paintings. With my paintbrush I feel like I can best convey the purity of our emotional experiences. I envision myself as a director and my paintbrushes are different characters creating a play for my audience; my goal is to receive a standing ovation.
I want individuals to appreciate the simplicity in beauty, and share the serenity that I feel when I visualize the coast. I want to remind people that art can be an escape similar to reading or watching a movie.
When I paint, it’s more than being an artist. It’s about communicating my perceptions and taking people on a visual adventure that will leave them speechless. I want my audience to see through my eyes and guide my paintbrush to manifest their experience or wildest dreams. I want to give people a sensation that goes beyond their vision.
Art should never be limited to eyes. Art is within your heart, and your imagination. Art should never be constricted; it should always stimulate wonder and mystery that pushes audiences beyond their vantage point.
Currently I am painting marshlands. I love experimenting with the paradox of gorgeous and grotesque. In my experience, I feel like marshlands are often neglected and dismissed, and want to remind people that there is beauty in messiness.
I want to convey the simplicity and vivacity that thrives within these lands to take my clients on a surreal adventure. I want to be their guide and my paintbrushes are my tool.
