James Zamora, Contemporary Artist

 

James Zamora, a contemporary realist painter, delves into American consumer culture through meticulous depictions of everyday products and shop displays. Born in Graham, Texas in 1988, Zamora earned his BFA in painting and drawing from The University of North Texas in 2010. Furthering his artistic education, he pursued a Master’s in Fine Art in painting from Texas Woman’s University in 2015.

 

Currently based in Natchitoches, Louisiana, Zamora serves as Assistant Professor of Art at Northwestern State University. His studio, located on campus adjacent to his students’ workspace, serves as a hub for creativity and artistic exploration.

Driven by a desire to capture everyday objects with a sense of three-dimensional realism on a two-dimensional plane, Zamora draws inspiration from artistic masters spanning the Renaissance, Impressionism, and abstract expressionist movements. Seeking to infuse deeper conceptual meaning into his photorealistic representations, he explores themes of emotion and sensation within the familiar.

 

Zamora’s portfolio features intimate portraits of ordinary items, meticulously highlighting their subtle nuances and complexities. Renowned for his exacting representational work, his pieces are regularly exhibited nationally across five galleries and grace numerous personal and public collections. Zamora’s artwork has been featured in esteemed publications such as New American Paintings West #114 and New American Paintings West #126.

 

For those interested in acquiring a piece of his unique vision, James Zamora’s artwork is available for sale at Signet Contemporary Art in Chelsea, as well as online.

 

James Zamora’s statement

 

 “As a realist painter I am attracted to the technical complexities of everyday life. My paintings are about the particularity between the relationship of our eyes with the subtleties of our immediate reaction.” – James Zamora
