San Antonio, TX
Artist Tim McMeans will exhibit his newest artwork here at the gallery. Join us at the opening reception on Thursday December 8th from 7-10 pm. Come meet the artist and talk about his work.
Tim McMeans paintings recall places, people, and experiences in the artist's life through the use of personal symbolism. In his work, nature, spirituality, and the idea of seeking out something are recurrent themes. The artist owns a personal visual vocabulary composed of various symbols that are left to the viewer to interpret.
The artist explains: "The paintings begin with preliminary sketches and are developed into the final piece intuitively. I have a background in woodcut printmaking and have applied various printmaking tools and techniques to my paintings. The paintings that were created on wood are carved into as if it were a woodcut block. I also used a brayer to apply the paint to the surface. The result is an image that is built up through a process of layering".
Tim McMeans is from San Antonio, Texas and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He has participated in numerous exhibitions around the country and was awarded the Julian Onderdonk Memorial Purchase Prize by the San Antonio Art league and Museum at the 76th Annual Artists Exhibition in April 2006.
