Jim Leland
Vacaville, California

With an education in architecture and a career in urban planning, it comes as no surprise that Jim Leland has a talent for painting cityscapes. Jim’s depictions of San Francisco exude a palpable timelessness--each scene could be representative of 50 years ago, or yesterday afternoon. The paintings are industrial yet peaceful. Each portrays a quiet corner of a bustling city that might be a challenge to encounter in daily reality. “There is a tremendous amount of editing or selection that goes into a cityscape,” says Jim. “Imagine looking down an urban street for several blocks--how many objects, people, vehicles, signs, lights must there be? As an artist I try to eliminate unnecessary items so I can convey the essence of the locale.”
