Acrylic on Canvas
48 x 24 in
"Electrified Jazz" is an acrylic-on-canvas painting by Nashville artist James Threalkill. People being his primary subject matter, Threalkill depicts his subjects with vivacity. He particularly enjoys depicting jazz musicians entranced in moments of lyrical spontaneity, which he reflects in his artistic style. Threalkill often listens to jazz while he works and allows the music to inform his paintings. Many of his vibrant color choices are made in the moment and applied with an accent knife to achieve the rich texture for which his paintings are known.
