URBAN EDGE Artist:
Tim Harper’s biggest influences are the Fauves and abstract modernism. His assemblage demonstrates his love color, energy and the written word.
Distraction is all around us, ephemera cliches, humorous jargon and crazy images of our everyday life. My art includes the profusion of the everyday experiences we encounter. I am trying to capture all of life’s Distractions in my mixed media collages, Urban Distraction. My work marries my interests in modernist abstraction, color, energy, happiness and joy, with my interest in the modern word and visual. My materials are paint and everything I can cut up and assemble on canvas, thus inviting the viewer into the realm of my art.
