Tim Tyler’s Red Curtains
Exhibition: October 14th – 22nd, 2017
Vernissage: Saturday, October 14th, 6-9 PM
Tim Tyler: I am currently working on a series “The Red Curtains”. I have been working on it for 11 years. In every painting there’s a red curtain, the symbol of the theatre. The red curtain and other symbols that have evolved over the years are the glue that holds this series together.
My paintings are theatrical, whimsical and odd. You may or may not like them but they are unique and they are a part of me. A painting is like a pregnancy. They take months to create, can be very challenging to produce but the delight of seeing them finally finished makes the process all worthwhile. When I finish one, I have to start another. That’s because my curiosity compels me to. I want to see what the next painting is going to be! One painting leads to another and to another…
I haven’t had the chance to go to an art school. I developed my own style in the theatre world and I am trying to do that with my art world. I like working on “series” of paintings and have ever since I started painting. My mind likes having a structure to work within and my eyes enjoy the characteristics that unite the body of work, like a family.
