About Jeffrey Primeaux

A native and current resident of Austin, Texas, I have been interested in and making art since childhood. My training continued through college in the art departments of St. Edward's and the University of Texas at Austin. My current, abstract work arose, in part, from a fascination with the lines of Ukiyo-e prints and manga illustration. Rather than lines reproduced from drawings to create multiple images, however, the lines of my abstract drawings and paintings are made compositely to create single works. Though Japanese art, directly and through its influence on other artists, has informed my representational art for a long time, my adoption of an abstract style developed from drawing exercises I did while recovering from a bicycle injury that interrupted my regular, studio practice.
