James Rodman Gill was born in Brush,Colorado in 1954. He's a modern painter in both Europe and the U.S. I very much like color, design and texture. To me innovation is the key to being a great artist. The subject matter should be a product of imagination (innovation) as opposed to realism. Realism is what we see from day to day. What is most interesting is the minds ability to conceive a new creation, to open up the mind and senses to see a new dimension, a stimulus for new sensations of thought and feeling. It means to leave our prejudices and preconcieved notions behind and experience our future based on the unknown.
