Jim Collins is primarily a Public Art sculptor working in a figurative manner, best exemplified by his long running series the WATCHER. His sculpture style has been characterized by the use of silhouettes of people and animals constructed of stainless steel, aluminum and other metals. Collins resigned as Professor of Art from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga 40 years ago to devote full time to his art. He received degrees from Marshall University in West Virginia, the University of Michigan, and a M.F.A. degree in sculpture from Ohio University. His work can be found in many Public and Private collections in the United States and Ireland with the majority located in the Southeastern United States. Colorful silhouettes of figures and animals can be seen from the Highways of Limerick, Ireland to Plano, Texas. Other recent commissions include: COWBOY WATCHER at Fishbone Alley in Gulfport, MS. KENNEL, larger than life-sized stainless-steel dogs for Sienna Plantation, Missouri, TX. BEAR FAMILY, life-sized CorTen steel commission for a private garden in Highlands, NC. Plus, a WATCHER figure for the Edwin Hotel in Chattanooga. Recently, three large-scale Public Art sculptures installed in Gainesville, GA.
