Happy Electronic Memories
New Works by James 'Jimbot' Demski
November 20-December 12, 2021
Saturday, November 20, 10am-Noon
For November's exhibit we've got something familiar, but also new. One of our long-time favorites and competing for having the most exhibits with us over the years (this will be his 6th solo exhibit in our gallery), Jimbot is back with a fresh body of work he's developed over the past year!
What's new, you ask? Well, for the first time Jimbot has prepared an exhibit of digitally created paintings. For previous exhibits we've mostly shown acrylic on wood or canvas pieces by Jimbot, but for this show we will be presenting a series of new limited edition prints based on his explorations of this new medium. For an artist that has built a career on working with a mix of acrylics, ink and dry transfer techniques it's a big jump to go 100% digital, but artistry knows no medium and Jimbot's voice shines through with this new technique.
Don't fear though, he's also made some of his charming wooden robots.
Join us Saturday, November 20, 10am-Noon for an informal reception, chat with Jimbot, and view/purchase the new works. Face coverings are required.
If you're unable to attend, we will also offer the new works via our Gallery Previews email list shortly after the opening. You can sign up at http://previews.rotofugi.com
Exhibit continues through December 12, 2021.

About the Artist
James Demski is a Milwaukee-based artist also known by the moniker “Jimbot.” His art takes you into other worlds where the unusual can happen, beauty is around us, and your daydreams can become a reality. What exactly is happening is often left up to the viewer’s interpretations and how they view the clues left behind by the artist. He creates these worlds to escape to, and for the viewers to enjoy. James uses acrylic paint, dry transfer letters, pencil and ink (and now also works digitally) to convey his thoughts, and wants the viewer to enjoy them as much as he enjoyed painting them.
This is Jimbot's sixth solo show at Rotofugi.
