Award-winning artist Timothy Harding will display some of his impressive works in an exhibition opening on Sept. 26 and running through Oct. 25 at the Angelina Center for the Arts Gallery.
Harding will share a site-responsive installation rooted in the idea of 2D objects that have spilled from their rectangular supports to merge with the 3D space of the gallery, responding to its unique characteristics. Components including laser-cut wood and paper, deconstructed acrylic paintings, and vinyl wall tape will comprise this work.
Currently, Harding is an Associate Professor of Art at Tarleton State University. He earned his Master of Fine Arts degree from Texas Christian University.
In 2018, Harding was a visiting artist at the Center for Creative Connections at the Dallas Museum of Art. In 2016 he received a Nasher Sculpture Center Artist Grant. Harding has exhibited nationally and held residencies at 77Art, the Wassaic Project, and the Vermont Studio Center. He is represented by Cris Worley Fine Arts, in Fort Worth, TX.
An artist’s reception and talk will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 26.
Admission to both the gallery and the reception is free to the public.
An artist’s statement is included below:
“Lines and Space is an immersive installation that delves into my longstanding interest in blurring the boundaries between sculpture and drawing. In this project, the idea of a line drawing moves from conventional paper-based notions to digitally derived gestures and doodles that cascade across a gallery wall and extend down to the floor beneath. The installation includes elements of vinyl tape on the wall juxtaposed with laser-cut wood painted with acrylic. Viewers are encouraged to navigate the space of this work and consider how it challenges their notions about the myriad forms a drawing can assume.”
