#29: Timothy Wilson - "Death and Decay"

Timothy Wilson is a painter based in Maine. He works from direct painting on location and expounds upon his studies in larger studio paintings. Both a meditative ritual and obsessive dedication, his daily outings in stormy, serene, and inclement weather to coastal Atlantic locations help inform an experiential vocabulary and expressionist mark making. After years of portrait and figurative work, Timothy merged his holistic concepts of the ocean, landscape, and figure; aiming to find a more abstract and resonate image through the natural deconstruction of imagery.

Timothy keeps a permanent studio on the coast of Maine. In 2015, he attended residencies at the DeDee Shattuck Gallery in Westport, Massachusetts, the Hewnoaks Residency in Lovell, Maine, and was an Art Students League selected fellow at their Hudson Valley residence location. Timothy’s works are part of the Restoration Hardware Contemporary Art collection. He teaches (occasionally) at the Maine College of Art. He received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008.
