James Maria is a recent graduate of Kutztown University’s Fine Art and Art Education programs. During his time in Kutztown, he began and now continues to maintain his studio production. In addition to exhibiting in international juried shows within the watercolor community, James also works with Red Raven Art Company in Lancaster, Pa, near his home in Sinking Spring. His work is largely informed by Pennsylvania’s post-industrial landscape, from which he draws inspiration. Abandoned interiors serve as an unorthodox tool to explore and communicate spiritual truths. His work also employs art historical references, materials and techniques to subtly reinforce the relationship between the disparate elements of theology and the beauty of entropy.
