Artist Timothy Robert Smith
Timothy Robert Smith is an LA-born oil painter and muralist, using observational techniques to investigate the nature of perception. His work fuses together multiple perspectives into a kaleidoscopic vision, playing with our understanding of time and space, and blurring the line between personal and collective experience. He is currently working on an interactive installation at the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, combining painted walls, sculpted figures, lights, sounds, and video projections. In this installation, entitled “Revised Maps of the Present”, viewers will enter what appears to be an urban landscape. As they walk into the scene, they observe the layers of reality disconnect, unfolding into a labyrinth of warping angles and hidden spatial dimensions.
Timothy has had solo shows at Copro Gallery in Bergamot Station, and interviews in several art magazines, including Juxtapoz. He also teaches at Laguna College of Art and Design, CSU Long Beach, CSU Los Angeles and Saddleback College.
