Jim Gaylord

Brooklyn based painter Jim Gaylord appropriates imagery from film and television, rearranging it into abstract compositions. He is interested in transitory moments where the onscreen action is obscured by camera pans, special effects and other distortions, rendering it unrecognizable. After creating a digital collage from these video stills, he reconstructs the picture from pieces of heavy paper that have been cut out and painted to create relief-like assemblages.

For his new edition of prints, Gaylord cut out the various shapes from sheets of wood veneer by hand, resulting in five color printing plates. This additive image-making technique reflects the collage process used in his current work.

Jim Gaylord’s work has been widely exhibited in group and solo shows, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, NY, Elizabeth Foundation, NY, CUE Art Foundation, NY, Berkeley Art Museum, CA, Southern Exposure, CA, Headlands Center for the Arts, CA, and Artnews Projects, Berlin. He has received fellowships and grants from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, and The Joan Mitchell Foundation.
