Born in 1943, Jim Roche received a BA from Florida State University (1961) and an MA and MFA from University of Dallas (1968 and 1970). He was Professor of Art at Florida State University from 1973 until his retirement in 2013. Over the course of a career that spans the better part of five decades, he has created a narrative of place, ecology, Southern culture, the art world, and the human condition through his work. His practice has ranged from the groundbreaking and meticulous ceramic work in his Potted Mama Plants from the 1960s, through conceptual and expressive drawings, massive maximalist installations in museums and in the landscape, found object constructions, art cars, video, spoken word performance, and the delicately detailed documentation of his life as Dr. Curve, a motorcycle legend.
