A Subtle Advertisement For Mind-Numbing Pain, 2013, Cel-vinyl acrylic on canvas, 144 x 96 in
His breathtaking, amusing style nods grinningly to pop cultural graphics of the past, while simultaneously forging brand new artistic ground. With each new piece, Biskup further defines himself as a master of his craft. - JJ Abrams.
Martha Otero Gallery is pleased to present Charge, an exhibition by Tim Biskup featuring a new body of work.
The title, Charge, holds complex personal references for Biskup. To be 'charged' or to be 'in charge' is to feel psychologically or emotively 'charged' as in renewed, revived and empowered. In particle physics, the theory of 'color charge' refers to an abstract concept of positive and negative values. The visual perception of color has no meaning for these particles. Essentially, 'color charge' is a rather whimsical term alluding to abstract values for abstract forces constantly at work in the universe. For Biskup, a 'charge' can be harbored by things constantly rejected as too abstract, too small or too anomalous. Biskup acts as a physical receptor to these alternative cultures, by producing works that channel musicality and vibrancy into a stream of progressive Modernism. Works such as A Subtle Advertisement For Mind-Numbing Pain, reflects a wealth of experience with contemporary graphic illustration, but rigorously defends traditional methodologies of composition, line and color gradients.
