An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Tim McFarlane.
Tim McFarlane, (American, 1964)
1994 Bachelor of Arts, Studio Art, Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia PA
“Relationships between time, memory, and movement form the primary foundation for my paintings. The masses of forms overlapping, supporting, and negating each other in my work mirror observations of everyday life; of how people interact with each other and their surroundings, as well as how the passage of time imposes itself on the memory of experience. I am interested in creating connections in my work for the viewer that may lead to a more unique understanding and meaning.
My paintings are built up in a combination of open and opaque layers, creating a sense of interdependence, history and chance happenings within the works. Dynamic color relationships and drawing form the organizational base for my paintings, creating spaces for entry into and discovery beyond the completed image. Filtered through experience, observation, and memory, I aim to build a dialogue with the viewer that reflects a personal experience with the world, but remains open-ended enough to allow for multiple readings and new discoveries.”
