James Arzente’s work is created out of his experiences from his past travels and his family. These experiences have created the environment for both his painting and digital work.
Upon receiving his BS in history and political science, James worked at the MacDowell Colony in Peterbourgh, New Hampshire. Grant writing and historical research were his responsibilities. After two years James took a job as Assistant Director of the Foundation Karolyi in Vence, France. It was here that James’ love of Modern French painting flourished. He later enrolled in the Leo Marchutz School in Aix-En-Provence. These experiences led to a decade of living in France and left a lasting influence for his love of Paul Cezanne and his deep appreciation of American Abstraction.
paintings are available through Andrea Marquit Fine Art, Boston MA.
Prints may be ordered directly from the artist. Arzente’s work is held in Corporate and Private collections in the United States. A detailed biography is available upon request.
