Simplicity and balance. Serenity and calm. J D Logan's art reminds us of a time that was (if only in our minds) simpler. A folk guitarist and an avid collector of primitive antiques and Americana, Folk Art became his natural choice of style when he first attempted to paint in 1998. It was his wife¹s suggestion that J.D. take up art after an injury to his left hand ended his musical career. Entirely self-taught, J.D. does a rough sketch from a thought in his head. With only one more detailed sketch, he starts painting.
J.D. names his greatest influences as Rufus Porter, Grandma Moses and Warren Kimble. "I am also influenced by the Shakers whose farms, furniture and lifestyle are simplistic, yet there is something that keeps drawing you in. I want the viewer to keep going back and finding some sense of serenity or calmness in my work," J.D. explains.
