Dick Jemison is a multidisciplinary artist based in Birmingham, Alabama where he owns his own gallery and studio. Jemison received his Bachelor’s of Arts from the University of North Carolina and his Master’s of Fine Arts from the University of Georgia. He credits his interest in the arts to his mother, an avid collector. He believes the act of creation is the whole-hearted affirmation of life, his pieces existing as an extension of his everyday life. Jemison’s colorful, abstracted paintings, sculptures and mixed-media creations reflect his interest in the random, yet evocative marks and detritus of our civilization.
