About The Artwork

While I sold the original to a Dear Friend, Jeffrey who owns about 7 of my originals for his Condo downtown, I still can make Giclee's on Canvas, on Metal, Acrylic, Paper both Matte and Gloss - Highest Quality - Epson Ultrachrome 99 year fade resistant. The Meaning behind this painting is about how our Conscious mind meets our Subconscious mind and which is more powerful. Naturally the Subconscious Mind is a 1000 times more powerful as it drives our everyday reactions, we can overcome the negative talks we all have using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Imagine you went to Barnes and Noble Bookstore or a Library. The book that you have in your hand at any moment is your conscious mind, while the rest of the library or book store and all of the knowledge that has been written into those pages represents your sub-conscious mind, your habits, your temperament, your personality, at any given time, is all made up by your subconscious. If you dare to dive into what makes you act the way you do, you will find a vortex of spinning emotions combined with what you told yourself and what your parents, spouses, mates, siblings, teachers, friends, etc. told you at any given time and your subconscious mind is now wired a certain way. With CBT, and a lot of inner discipline, you can "re-wire" your mind to become a winner. This is called neural plasticity. Destroying negative axon and dendrite neural pathways and re-wiring your brain for a whole new connection that can become strong. You can do it! You can change if you want.

James Christopher Hill Artist Biography Born in Charleston, South Carolina, James Christopher Hill, has gained international notoriety for his paintings by his collectors and viewers. He is best known for painting his landscapes and skyscapes filled with vibrant color, swift movement and radiant energy in a contemporary stylistic language. His work explores the use of color and rhythm to create powerful, sweeping images that seek to provoke a particular mood or emotion by capturing an exact moment or memory in time that is meaningful to both him and the viewer. As a professional artist in his early twenties including owning his own art gallery in downtown Charleston, James decided to acquire formal training at the prestigious Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. In 1998, he graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Animation; a field that while at Ringling, focused mainly on the understanding and discipline of master drawing and painting skills. His senior thesis entitled "Jataka" took home the Gold Oscar in the category of Best Student Computer Animation in 1998 from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 1999, James returned to the discipline of fine art and his work has been shown in numerous galleries in the Southeast and he has recently had two gallery openings in Manhattan, New York where his work was well received. He has won numerous awards in both fine art and computer animation including the AVA, Telly and the Aurora. He has served as vice-chair for both city art councils and art guilds in Charleston. In 2007, he created and published his first art book entitled Skyscapes and Landscapes. Since 2005, he has curated several shows with over 30 artists and is now showcasing his works as and exhibitor at Science Fiction/Fantasy conventions including DragonCon, Megacon, Heroes Con, ConCarolinas and ConTemporal 2011, a steampunk convention where he was the featured artist for the show. James has been developing a growing number of private and commercial collectors throughout the United States and the world. His work has been profiled on various articles, magazines and television shows. Still, James works every day to try to expand his knowledge and his talents through the study of the great masters of art throughout the ages.
