GARY JAMESON

NORTH BEACH, MARYLAND, USA

 

Gary Jameson was born in Aurora, Illinois. For many years his art has been influenced and inspired by the American landscape and the human presence within that landscape, recognizing an aesthetic legacy that includes an eclectic range of American artists.  Jameson currently is working on a series of "digital montages," that incorporate historical images of the past with the present.  Other recent art includes drawings, paintings, and sculptures inspired by imagery of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as other images of the American landscape from Maine to California.  Jameson has a BFA degree from the University of Illinois, a MFA degree from Northern Illinois University and is an alumnus of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. Jameson presently is on the faculty of the College of Southern Maryland.  Additionally he was an artist-in-residence at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis from 2009-2012.

"My art recognizes the culmination of my life for the past near fifty years, from where I have been to where I am.  There has been a strong influence of locale, from flatlands to factories, from cities to seascapes, which inspires the imagery of my art.  There has also been an influence of people who have affected and/or affirmed my visual opinions and philosophies.  Art is neither good nor bad, only true or false. I strive to achieve truth in all my art."
