Demo & Discourse: Jim Iannone on Mixed Media
Contemporary Art Gallery
Part of Locally Made’s One Room.
In Demo & Discourse, artists, designers, and experts from across disciplines and mediums share examples of their work and talk about process.
Demonstration, drawing, work on paper, mixing colors. Showing people how to make paint—the notion that oil and water don’t mix does not apply.— James Iannone
Free with museum admission.
James Iannone lives and grew up in the Providence area. Over the past 13 years he has worked as an artist technician for Dan Clayman and Linda Ross, making glass objects for different people and artists from all over the world.
His own work is mostly on paper and canvas. His uncle (by marriage), Alfred DeCredico, was a big part of his creative life. James was inspired sitting in on his uncle’s classes at RISD.
He makes paint from various found materials, from dirt taken from Africa and Europe to volcanic ash from Mt. St. Helens.
