Opening Reception: Saturday, October 22, 1-4pm
Newzones is pleased to announce an exhibition of new mixed media artworks by Timothy McDowell.
Timothy McDowell's most recent work explores images and systems within nature. This imagery portrays organic forms in an expansive, all-inclusive manner, incorporating the scientific as well as the idyllic associations with nature and our world. He attempts to portray the excess that is nature. McDowell's process incorporates old maps lined to the linen canvas. During the lining and waxing, subtle aspects of the maps peek through the image side and these "bleed-throughs" are used in the design of the finished piece. The overall effect creates luminous forms that seem to float in an undefined space.
McDowell was born in 1953 in Texas and obtained his BFA at the Midwestern State University and his MFA at the University of Arizona. His paintings have been exhibited widely across North America and Europe. These beautiful encaustic abstract paintings can be found in many international collections including The Bank of America, The William Benton Museum of Art, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. His artworks have been widely published with such publications as The Art of Encaustic Painting by Joanne Mattera and Flora by Four Contemporary Artists by Ivette Lee.
