Timothy Joyce: Facing Forward

FEBRUARY 5 - FEBRUARY 25, 2016
Curated by Karen Petkovic

Artist Timothy Joyce studies the human form with his unique abstract style. The show is a collection of portrait and figure drawings using discarded materials to give them a second chance to inspire and engage us.

Opening Reception: Friday, February 5 from 7-9 pm

ARTIST STATEMENT

I use materials found in junk shops, painting over cheap reproduction pictures, house paint, spray paint, you name it. Upcycling is the new expression I guess. It pleases me to give what is discarded a new life. My single intent is to make the viewer feel what the expression of the pictures contain. I don’t look away from all kinds of human life. Every single person on earth matters.

In all the years I lived on Cape Cod I don’t believe I have ever painted a sail boat in the ocean. You can find those kinds of paintings anywhere. Iowa even. I am a citizen of the world and from the Party of Woody Guthrie I have created quite a number of wooden figures from discarded materials of a guitar making workshop at the high school where I taught on Cape Cod. Need to find new sources. Boat yards around her maybe.

Painting is for me just another mode of Jazz, the true American art form. Eye music. Colors, dust, and breath. From the earliest moment until the last.
