Jim Jobe’s work holds consistent ties to themes of interconnections, and perception, vacillating between formal abstraction and an eccentric combination of abstract and representational elements.  Interpretations from nature, observations on perceptual awareness, and a keen interest in the use and influence of structure as both a unifying visual element and a natural phenomenon, are pivotal in much of the imagery in his work.  The corresponding symbols that emerge in Jobe’s pieces, both personal and universal, contribute toward creating work that is intriguing as well as accessible through exploration and through an intuitive appeal.
