Artist Takes Inspiration from Iphone Culture for Los Angeles based Art
James Jarvis continues his American Aesthetic painting series with this interpretation of Los Angeles.
NEW YORK, NY, October 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- New art piece titled 'Absent generation' by James Jarvis cleverly explores the themes of youth culture in the United States and the global dominance of the iPhone in daily lives. The subject of two young men on a sun soaked Los Angeles beach reflecting the sense of boredom that the artist experienced in his own journey passing through Hollywood. Represented is a contemporary youth culture in America that is set in a time of uncertainty with recent economic depressions that is now shaping the way a generation are seeing their future.
By displaying the painting onto a physical everyday object, the artist explores the idea of the sculptural and how users interact with their phones: "You have to play with it in order to see the canvas and paint texture. Also in relation to this series, by using such a solid item it continues the idea of making my paintings sculptural: a step up from the multiple canvas concept that itself has a three dimensional effect" says Jarvis.
This is the fourth art piece in a painting series called 'American Aesthetic'. Through this collection James Jarvis commentates on his thoughts and feelings of culture in the United States as though his own experiences travelling around the nation, via the Greyhound bus service, in an "intense" twenty-five day trip that spanned nine cities. The unique use of multiple canvases explores the idea of the urban with rigid grids.

Traditional fine art is now boring to look at yet I still paint it. I am going to show you something new in this saturated field.
- My technique: photorealist with oils.
- My vision: inspired by the ideals of the purity of spacial form, lines and gaps.
For this new body of work I am going to focus on two things. 1) telling an experience through an image. 2) Use frames to construct a layered composition that will lead you through said image.
I will take this following experience into art that is aesthetically meaningful.
