"Over the past several years, I have worked with a wide range of materials, and most recently I have been using digitally applied techniques, so to create pieces that defy classification as either paintings or sculpture.My aesthetic expresses itself in the complete resolution of the various chosen materials, both mechanically and aesthetically".
 
#CURATORPILL
Timothy Schmitz (Wisconsin, Usa,1964). "My aesthetic expresses itself in the complete resolution of the various chosen materials, both mechanically and aesthetically” . Timothy Schmitz's process-driven abstract paintings achieve aesthetic purity through the mastery of complex techniques. Using exotic materials, including a combination of ground marble and oil on panel, the artist produces quietly dramatic works whose richly crackled textures, glistening surfaces, and incendiary hues evoke the complementary dynamism and stillness of ancient ceramic finishes. Informed by rigorous experimentation and the embrace of chance and procedures, Schmitz's art is distinguished by its uncommon compositional harmonies and understated expressiveness.
 
Each week Rossella Farinotti, our curator, selects 6 interesting artworks on Kooness choosing artists from different generations, mediums, countries and approaches to contemporary art, indicating the reasons why it’s worth understanding the artwork.​​​​​​​

Schmitz says: 

"Over the past several years, I have worked with a wide range of materials, and most recently I have been using digitally applied techniques, so to create pieces that defy classification as either paintings or sculpture.My aesthetic expresses itself in the complete resolution of the various chosen materials, both mechanically and aesthetically. 

For me, the process itself is extremely satisfying. The varied artist- applied surfaces work in harmony with the varied machine-made surfaces. The tension between the materials and the combination of analogue and digital methods has resulted in works that are at peace with themselves.

My current work draws from a minimalist vocabulary. Compositions of light, colour, and idea fuse together in these orchestrations of surface. There is a quiet grace in this current work, a purging of the extraneous, and a reduction to visual essence. Notice, as you move around the work, how the colour values shift from dark to light, how forms appear then dissolve. The effect is a sort of kinetic cinematic experience. These are colour field films. There is an incessant shifting in this work that is its drama. A network of surfaces refusing to be simply described or pinned down. The viewer becomes the viewed behind the surfaces of glowing colour fields. There is a certain mystery and intrigue in this body of work that I find compelling."
