James M. Sulkowski was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1951. He studied for
two years at the Pennsylvania Academy of fine Arts in Philadelphia, Carnegie Mellon
University and most notably at The Art Students League of New York with master
painter, Frank Mason. It was during his five years of study with Mr. Mason that
Sulkowski learned the concepts and techniques of the great masters.
Mr. Sulkowski's work combines a philosophy and science along with his art. His
subject matter is nature. In his landscapes, still lifes, portraits and murals, he
attempts to reveal the universal and the beautiful elements found in the world
around us. To him, this is change enough. Like the Masters, he believes that
capturing the inner essence of his subject is as important as painting the eternal
mask. Whistler said, "the palette is your instrument, the colors are the notes and
on it you play your symphonies."
Sulkowski adheres to this principle as he uses his knowledge of science in
preparing all of his own materials by hand. He grinds his own paints from powdered
pigments in oils and varnishes which he painstakingly prepares. He also consults
Renaissance recipes in making his own gessoed panels and lead-ground canvases.
This emphasis on the CRAFT of painting is essential to Sulkowski's art. Only in
this way is the artist able to control the consistency and vitality of his medium.
These methods of the Masters also contribute to a work of art with lasting value
and permanence and one that is timeless.
In 1994, James opened the Sulkowski Academy of Fine Arts in Houston, Pa., where he
teaches the concepts and techniques of classical painting.
