Description

The Dark Corner: An exploration of self through the people & struggles in the great Southwest.

Mixed media artwork by Tim Calkins

timcalkinscreative.com

Tim Calkins is a Michigan native who's lived in Cortez for 6 years. His style incorporates a variety of hand and digital processes he's learned while merging the line of design and fine art.

His attempts to mix realism and abstraction are juxtaposed through modern color harmonies and historic subject matter. He sees abstraction in the places and people he’s encountered living and traveling the southwest and he translates that to a 2-D medium.

“My artwork is a story about people, places and the struggles we all face living in this place. It’s real, it’s raw, it can be hard and it can be rewarding all at once. it’s like no other place. I try to make each piece unique while telling a story from work to work that people can be inspired by and evoke a relatable emotion they too have experienced. Westerns have always interested me, the myths, the reality and everything I between. Had I not moved to Cortez, I wouldn’t be doing the work I am today.“
