The spiritual dimension of Jim’s contemporary work pulls from Amerindian, Oceanian cult objects, European relics and cabinets of curiosities. Jim was born in Koumac in New Caledonia and his adventures took him to New Zealand, India, Hong Kong, and these places and their cultures are branded in his work. At the tender age of eight he came face to face with his first skull he found in a forest. He prefers to work with rope and natural materials, but also works with glass, cloth and plastic. His wife described him to be a monomaniac with an obsession for skulls since 1980, but he says “I don’t feel any weariness, it’s like the more I work with, the more I discover.” Dixie Rose
