Join us once again in September for the Cary Art Loop ‘Final Friday’ art crawl as we host an encore show for local artist, Tim Zerkel. Tim is a resident muralist / painter at Trader Joe’s of Cary.
I am inspired by modern artists, especially the cubists and expressionists. Working this way means play, exploration and (a safe form of) risky behavior. I like to entertain a variety of possibilities and make up rules so I can then break them. I also like to revisit perceptual painting–realistic portraiture and still life– from time to time to contemplate light, form and color. The great Jasper Johns said it best:
“Sometimes I see it and then paint it. Other times I paint it, and then see it. Both are impure situations, and I prefer neither.”
