Jim Denomie (B 1955 Wisconisin, USA) is a painter who confronts issues about United States History and Native American History head on in his narrative paintings.  He uses humor, art history and contemporary events as threads through brightly colored dreamscapes and landscapes.  His work widely collected and are included in these notable museums:

  • Denver Art Museum
  • Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, Indianapolis
  • Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington
  • Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Willamette University, Salem, Oregon
  • Heard Museum of Native Cultures and Art, Phoenix, Arizona
  • Minneapolis Institute of Arts
  • Minnesota History Center, St. Paul
  • Minnesota Museum of American Art, St. Paul
  • Montana Museum of Art and Culture, Missoula
  • Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, Oklahoma
  • Science Museum of Minnesota, St. Paul
  • Tweed Museum of Art, Duluth, Minnesota
  • Weisman Art Museum, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis
  • Westphalian Museum of Natural History, Munster, Germany

Felicia Glidden is interested in assisting Denomie to broaden his audience in Europe. They both grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and inviting him to Friedrichshafen for the premier of her project space is a way of grounding herself in her new home in Germany.  Glidden never imagined she would be living in the south of Germany (or she would have studied the language much sooner), but somehow, moving to Europe is teaching her a great deal about what it means to be an American. Jim Denomie’s work is rooted in the American experience, in ways that reflect contemporary society and reach back into a history of painful truths.

The fourteen artworks in the exhibition are primarily portraits. The catalog includes a broad range of selected images of Denomie’s paintings over the last 20 years.
