About

We perceive everything from nothing – And there’s a recording and transmitting of this everything called perception – There’s a depth to perception achieved and discovered through experience in life – And my goal is to experience and relay this depth through visual art.

James Penfield is based in Minneapolis, MN. Much of his work begins with the photo image because of its immediacy as a medium to capture experience as it occurs in the moment. He’s an active guy, with a drive to go traveling to snowboard, hike and bike around the country, using photo images from these experiences to create from. You can read more in an interview posted below. He’s represented by Gallery Mar in Park City, UT and Horizon Fine Art in Jackson Hole, WY.
