An enigmatic stranger. A detached beauty. A striking poise. Teal blue fades to terracotta, flows into lilac in the gentle waves of ombré hair. She pauses, a model of self-assurance in her silent serenity. The artist watches, takes note.
Jimmy Cobb observes the world, absorbs the backdrop of Muskegon, Michigan, the landscape of his childhood. Intrigued, captivated, he seeks out and searches for the answers in a complicated, ever-changing world. He questions, challenges accepted realities, draws upon abstract concepts of poetry and philosophy, and channels them through his art.
He captures man's futile attempt to conquer time with a touch of the surrealist. He dissects a human face from the angle of a cubist. He draws inspiration from the old and reclaims it. This young artist, this creative mind has taken his unique voice to the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design looking to be guided and inspired. Follow his artistic hand and watch this space.
