TIMOTHY ROBERT SMITH

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

My paintings are created from observations of the world around us; but not just from my perspective, from all possible perspectives. Set in a fast-moving metropolis, my images explore several vantage points at the same time, fusing together multiple scenes into one kaleidoscopic image. Viewers are looking up, down and all around, seeing as the floor sees, and as the ceiling sees, as the ground sweeps beneath their feet. An urban landscape unfolds into a labyrinth of hidden spatial dimensions; where time, probability, and the diversity of human perception work together to expand our understanding of reality.

 

NICKEL DINER

OIL ON WOOD PANEL, 24 IN. X 16 IN., 2016

This piece, set in the Nickel Diner in Downtown LA, compresses different frames of time into one image. I wanted to show simultaneity in cause and effect; or, someone drinking coffee at the same time as it is poured.
