PAINTER

B. 1975 CANADA

It is my hope that this series of work may act as a jumping off point for the viewer. I seek to provide a visual journey that challenges my audience to determine the meaning and significance of the work based on their own thoughts, values and experiences.

Using specially developed spreaders, Tim moves dense gel across a smooth panel. He focuses on moving the viewers eye through the composition as if they were a vehicle looking for just the right off ramp to home. Gestural twists and turns take his audience through a web of thick and thin lines. A sense of kinetic energy brings the paintings surface to life in an almost topographical fashion.
