Jimmie’s life is abundant with memories. Weaving the past into the present is a way of solidifying and unifying both. While he is an untrained artist, Jimmie understands and appreciates the very nature of ephemeral art, and many of his arrangements can be seen as folk art installations.
The relationship of things past and present, and our personal memories of existence provide comforting connections in our lives. As a folk artist, Jimmie is documenting his past, his place in time. He is celebrating time, and the everyday people who lived in his world. Jimmie’s art is a vehicle for his philosophy, and he begs us to think, to take time to remember, to make connections.
