Roger by James Corwin. All Rights Reserved. James Corwin designs distinct oil paintings through a unique balance of gestural paint techniques and precise detail. Primarily focused on wildlife he creates a finely detailed subject often emerging through obscure and atmospheric landscapes. Avoiding static portraits and general themes in wildlife art, Corwin aims to engage the viewer through his dynamic compositions that stir emotion.
With an appreciation for both fine detail and contemporary art, Corwin exquisitely marries the two in each painting with detailed subjects and loosely constructed backgrounds often exposing the underpainting and raw canvas.
Corwin gathers inspiration and references from his frequent travels to exotic destinations around the world. A recent trip to South Africa opened his eyes to threats of poaching on wildlife. A portion of his sales support conservation projects throughout the world.
