THE ART OF LIFE WITH A SPLASH OF REALITY
Timothy F Phillips art is considered to be a naive artist with a splash of realism.
Occasionally he frames his vision of the artwork with bright foliage through which the skies glimmer and the moons glow in and evening hue. In a careful analysis of Timothy's paintings, one of the first things we notice is that his subjects are a little slanted or off tilt.
For him, the words of Grandma Moses rings true ( I am a primitive naïve type artist and that works for me. In closing, A primitive artist is an amateur whos works sell. Timothy works with feelings, emotions, and imagination these are all qualities and principle ingredients in the creation of ( The Art Of Life With A Splash Of Reality ) where the spirit will always prevail and art is first and foremost an expression of his own faith in his abilities to create simple beauty with a complex style.
If for Grandma Moses. "impressionistic realism lost all its enchantment when contemplating the miracle of imagination which he introduces in his drawing and coloring all done before the grand final of a finished work of art almost struggling to completion. Timothy does not conceive his work only as a beautiful object in itself, nor does he present the "realities" of the exterior world in his beautiful abodes and skylines, and riverbanks with colorful little boats afloat; instead, he expresses the perceptions born of his own meditational self-therapy which he has done since he was just a child of 10 drawing on the sidewalks of his little home town of Coudersport Pennsylvania. He makes us all aware of his view of new dimensions where little houses
And little cats become symbols that transmit that "another reality is hidden behind appearances," and enchanted paths to the beach come to suggest evocative images of a better world for all to enjoy and live in contentment. The work of Timothy that the world has become to identify with certain themes, his treatment of colors, and hues, and shadows and careful brush-strokes does not always result in a common style; he enjoys at times, distancing himself from the schemes and from his habitual techniques to give to us all, for instance, cityscapes, countrysides, farmlands, cottages on the beach with splashing waves and a hammock to relax in are all conceived within his distinct style from which perfects with each work of art he does.
Timothy believes that with the publication of his words and his works he is bringing to light the essence of the work of a true master who achieves with his art a transformation not of the world, but of the way we see it. for this and many other reasons, we are sure that when one speaks of Timothy F Phillips, we do so of an artist truly committed to the body of work - composed with a precise hand and great use of colors and hues, shading, and shapes, and forms, - which brings us a vision of a more humane world.
