Educated at Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT, USA) with a degree in neuroscience, drawing and developmental biology, he uses his background in cytohistology to create large-scale watercolor paintings and sculptures that explore his identity as a Korean-American, and as someone who has suffered from a panic and anxiety disorder since his childhood. Timothy was the 2014 recipient of the VSA Emerging Young Artist Award given by the Kennedy Center (Washington DC, USA), as well as the International Emerging Artist Award in Dubai. He currently lives and works in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, and has exhibited in New York City, at the S. Dillon Ripley Center of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, and internationally in Seoul, Dubai, and Madrid. He is currently represented by Sabrina Amrani Gallery in Madrid, Spain where he had his first European solo exhibition titled “double-sided” in 2014.  photo 462300_3326640729338_1779139158_o_zps9a863c12.jpg  photo Copy-of-Secretive-skin-installation_zps49e871cd.jpg

Displayed are some of the birds I found, fully intact with everything that they were, aside from a conscience and a pulse. The birds are photographed in ways representative of the moment of impact or the aftermath of impact." - Miranda Brandon  photo rsz_h900_26_139_zps6d633117.jpg  photo rsz_h900_26_77_zps4d97913a.jpg  photo rsz_h900_26_140_zps1c492153.jpg

I studied at the University of the Philippines college of fine arts (y.1996-2000). I worked for 12 years in the industry of home design and painted large scale oil and acrylic paintings. Shortly after exhibiting in New York at the Philippine Consulate, I moved to Maryland and focused on my art career. I like painting playful portraits, often digressing into odd places.

Color Field by Liza Lou

 photo 03_zps2e6a74d0.jpg  photo 01_zps4614cf0b.jpg  photo 07_zps2731ceb7.jpg 'For twenty years, the glass bead has been Liza Lou’s primary art-making material. Lou transforms the possibilities of this tiny unit of color and embellishment just as she expands the meaning of the objects she recreates. Color Field (2010-2013), her newest floor-bound sculpture, features an expansive prism of color. The gridded rainbow is composed of uniform lengths of wire, each threaded with a single shade of beads. The sheer expanse of the piece conveys exuberance, underscored by the work’s bounty: its multitude of colors, beads, and touch. Pulsing and pixelated, Color Field’s complex mosaic foregrounds its construction and the network of hands which helped shape it.'

Since then he has won the Towry prize at the National Open Art Competition, exhibited at the prestigious Pallant House Gallery in Chicester and most recently been awarded the KPMG Young Artist Award at the RUA Belfast. He is interested in the process of painting, manipulating the material and working to its distinct qualities, while paying heed to differing textures in skin and how this is conveyed through tonal value and the temperature of colour. He is inspired by our perception of, and our interaction with each other through visual identity. The combination of expression, eye contact, concealment, colour and texture makes for a varied involvement with each of his works.  photo Hyperrealistic_Portrait_Paintings_by_Kyle_Barnes_2014_04-650x502_zps5b8dbe9f.jpg
