James Jean’s latest series is called “Stills“, and just from looking at the paintings, you get the idea that they are most likely stills from classic movies. Honestly, it doesn’t matter what James Jean paints, it could be people eating at a fast food restaurant and it would still look amazing. The color palettes each painting has, and the energetic, slightly sloppy way he has applied the paint, really help make these works something to stare at for hours. Could the colors mean something? I’m sure if you look at the faces in each work, thinking about the colors meaning cold, passion, and jealousy, it would make sense– but there’s no way to tell if Jean meant for it to be that way.
