Human Traces

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 4:50 PM

Now open at the David Lusk Gallery, Tim Crowder’s “Building a Proper Wall” is a surreal—at times bleak, at times playfully ironic— look at a psychological landscape.

Crowder does not use human figures in these paintings, though there are traces of their existence: in the walls and fences and houses they’ve crafted. Instead of a human face for his personal experiences and feelings of alienation, Crowder opts for animals and animal shapes.

“Animals, I like them because they aren’t so specific,” says Crowder. “You paint a person and it means something different. You’ve painted a portrait or you’ve painted a type of person — either young or old, or something you may not intend to. But with animals they’re a little bit more open to interpretation.”
