Lee Jamison Description

 

 

LEE JAMISON (b. 1957)

 

As a very young child, Lee Jamison developed an interest for art. He started drawing as soon as he could hold something to make a mark with. He recalls beginning to paint around eight years of age and he was constantly involved in art classes through high school. He chose to major in art at Lon Morris College, a small Methodist junior college in Jacksonville, Texas, and completed his degree at Centenary College in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Jamison feels that drawing is a form of expression, similar to writing, and he simply expresses things he knows through his art. He enjoys working in series which are often rich with historical influence. While he has no set process for creating a work, he describes his paintings as ideas vaguely bubbling up from below. His historical works always begin with a recorded event but the potential connection of historical occurrences to modern-day issuesdrive him to create pieces compelling to the viewer. Essentially, Jamison’s artwork is his own historical exploration.

Since 1982, Jamison has been a full-time artist. He is known for three major specialties: landscapes in oils (particularly of East and Central Texas), large murals, and historical paintings. His landscapes have been the mainstay of a career spanning a quarter of a century. His mural projects have included major works for the Driskill Hotel in Austin and The University of Texas at Austin. His historical works draw on his knowledge of Texas history and include numerous works on the Texas revolution.
