Fishing for MermaidsGiclee On Canvas

NOTES: “Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They’re huge and abstract. And they’re very beautiful.” - David Lynch Where do you fish for ideas? When you’re idea-fishing with artist James C. Christensen, you’re baiting your hook for something magical. And what’s more magical than a mermaid? Now, there’s an idea! “Ideas aren’t conjured up on demand,” says the artist. “The quest for the next fun idea requires patience. But that patience is truly rewarded when—Eureka!—the excitement of the fresh idea arrives.” In “Fishing for Mermaids,” Christensen muses on the creative process of finding ideas. Our fisherman is William Shakespeare, and he’s fishing for a muse in the form of a mermaid. He’s come prepared, and knows that using a hand mirror as a lure will appeal to the vanity of a mermaid, bringing his catch to the surface so he can get a closer look. For the moment, he sits patiently, knowing his catch will be well worth the wait. Much like Shakespeare’s mirror, James C. Christensen’s “Fishing for Mermaids” is your invitation to a world of imagination and the infinite possibilities of ideas…

James Christensen bio

Inspired by the world's myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen wants his work to add up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes "curious" looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he likes to think of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates-be it a porcelain, fine art print or book-he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen's philosophy that "Believing is Seeing." Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then, he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen has been designated as a "Utah Art Treasure," one of Utah s Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governor s Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensen s artwork to Utah s cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazine s Hall of Fame and is an Honored Alumnus at Brigham Young University for his contributions to fine art and education. James and his wife Carole, co-chair the Mormon Arts Foundation. He is a frequent guest lecturer at Brigham Young University, and has also given workshops to large companies and organizations on the subject of creative thinking, including the California Art Educator s Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care. In addition to his fine art limited editions on paper and canvas, Christensen s work can be found in five acclaimed books and a series of interactive journals and in three dimensions in porcelain and hand-crafted limited-edition bronze sculptures
