Whilst at the Tate, Jim also collaborated with architects to design certain facilities at Tate Modern and Tate Britain. Today, Jim exhibits his paintings in galleries, fairs and exhibitions across the UK and the USA.
Jim Grundy’s Inspiration
For Jim, inspiration seems to come from everywhere and everything. Jim recently created a series of work based on the textures and colours of rock formations in the USA. Ever the observer, he also has created abstract paintings responding to the tile patterns found in historic Spanish towns. Jim’s ‘Figure’ series merges his geometric abstract approach with shapes of figures and a subtle human presence.
