Thanks to Lauren Graham, I have recently been introduced to the work of Timothy Karpinski and have just fallen in love with the quiet, peaceful meditative qualities of his images. Perhaps it's my childhood in WV, but his paintings conjure those nights under the handmade quilts in your Grandma's guest bedroom. The nights when you slept peacefully and dreamt of snapping green beans, woke to the smell of pancakes and bacon.
Want to bring your attention to his website, paintings and installation work.
From his site, Timothy says:
From a young age ive always been making things. Building forts turned into building skate ramps which lead to building art installations. I love the art making process, from the initial spark of the "idea", the creation to the finished product. Art for me is very personal and everything i make is a direct reflection on my feelings about this world and my struggle and fascination with trying to understand it and find my purpose within it.
