Low Tech (framed) by James Christensen
The indomitable spirit of the space age barnstormer is what made the space program work. Before there was a high tech, there had to be a low tech.
James C. Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University as well as the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then he has had one-man shows in various places, and has his work in the United States as well as in Europe. Opulent, colorful, Shakespearean, extraordinary: All words that aptly portray Christensen’s most popular artworks that have also been described as “creations from the land a little left of reality.”
He has created a Shakespearean Island, an entire undersea world and a village of Mother Goose characters. But when he isn’t giving life to other’s worlds, he paints a place of his own. The result is a unique kinetic kingdom where recognizable human emotions are often manifested as fish or fowl. His art includes unique people, places and things that exist somewhere between adult dreams and childhood memories.
