Flaws inherent in language are strengths. Not being able to codify what is felt by experiencing art is one of its strengths. It gives rise to ‘talking around the thing’ but never getting at it. A cultural dialog ensues, then matter, the stuff of stuff, behaves like ceaseless energy. On view June 21 to July 4, 2013. Opening June 22, 6-8pm.

Tim Olson: WORKS

Tim Olson: WORKS

I am one of those artists who think that everything is art.

At some point, everything has a symbolic effect. At some point these symbols either enlighten us, or misdirect us.

If you go to school and study art history, it seems to be a series of one paradigm usurping the next. Classicism is replaced by Romanticism is replaced by Impressionism is replaced by Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, etc. etc.
