Jim Malone
JIM MALONE (American, 1943) Jim Malone was born in 1943 in Savannah, New York. He studied at State University of New York then attended graduate school at Texas Christian University. Malone has exhibited in solo and group shows across Texas, New York, Washington, D.C., New Mexico and Kansas. Known for his textured drawings and mixed media works depicting the hot, dry landscape of far West Texas, Malone works intuitively in part-draftsman, part-surrealist manner on paper, using a wide range of tools and colors. He makes frequent trips to the Big Bend region where he finds inspiration. “The artwork becomes a bit of a souvenir of experiences,” Malone says, as he describes his desire to capture and interpret not only the visual landscape but the energy of the environment there.
