Jim Nowlin (Timeless)
Jim is an enigma of grace, compassion, and sensual beauty. A descendant of Cupid and Psyche, he is Passion. Thoughtful and inspirational, he creates a better world by living life to the fullest through a generous spirit and dance. He is an artist of his own making, expressing himself with costumes from second-hand and vintage clothing for a modern masterpiece.

Mixed Media, Organic, Time Based Sculpture
The seeds for this work of art were planted sometime in the early 21st Century and required 9 months of incubation and 11 years of careful manipulation and exploration. This organic sculpture encompasses the daily struggle of both the individual teen age human and those who must coexist in her environment. This work of art is important in documenting the evolution of the active child to the socially encumbered teen.
As an artist I seek to educate, enlighten and intrigue my viewers. I feel a work of art is successful if it makes you stop and question, evoking an emotional response in the viewer.
While setting up this human sculpture piece at NCCA-Artsplace in Fremont, Michigan, many kids coming in for classes giggled and enjoyed the art while adults wished they could put their teenager in a glass box too! -Lindsay Isenhart
