This publication accompanies an exhibition which brings together recent paintings and works on paper as well as key works produced since the late 1980s and offers an opportunity to re-evaluate Jim Bird’s work in the context of modern and contemporary painting. Jim Bird was born and grew up in Bloxwich, Walsall, eventually leaving to pursue a career as an artist abroad. Whilst living in New York, he exhibited with artists such as Robert Motherwell and Kenneth Noland. He now lives in Majorca which has been his home for many years and where he is a much loved and celebrated abstract painter.
