Bay College announces the reception
for the exhibition, Aesthete, artwork by Timothy Armstrong.
Please join us in the Besse Gallery on Thursday January 12th at 2 p.m. for
the Opening Reception and Artist Talk.
Armstrong began painting in High School and attended the School Of
Associated Art in St. Paul, MN. A Carpenter of 27 years, the tools and
techniques of his trade have greatly influenced his work. The human scale,
abstraction and puzzling figure/ground relationships occur organically and
surprisingly in each of his paintings.
disciplined and prolific painter, his work materializes through a process of
de-construction, paper tooled into gesso and intensely spontaneous graphite
His paintings have an air of immediacy and can be understood credibly
as tenets to sparse, modern design fundamentals.
" My painting is to exemplify the relationships between
actions. I do not set out with a particular image, premeditated; I must extract
it. It must be allowed to emerge. My use of the materials, unpretentiously for
exactly what they are. The hand with it's knowledge and fallibility. Most
crucial is the quality of observation and letting that subjugate how I
discipline my decisions".
The exhibition of his work can be
viewed in the Besse Gallery from January 12- February 23, 2017.
