Timothy R. Bauer
March 5 - March 26
First Friday Art Walk – March 2021
Color is so essential to Timothy; always drawn to the colors of the landscape, or sky and reflected shadows. By grinding pebbles, shells, etc. and blending them into his paint, Timothy produces an actual pigment for each landscape or portrait he paints, creating a real, tangible link to the environment that enchanted him to it in the first place.
Born and raised in Topeka, Timothy has always been involved in the arts one way or another. Between his different careers in various states such as a designer at Hallmark, Art Director in several notable films, the Executive Design Director for the Franklin Mint, designing bears for the Boyds Collection, being in charge of MLB, NFL, NBA, Lord of the Ring, Fantasy Dragon and Sci-Fi licenses at Danbury Mint and writing a novel and children’s books. Timothy choose to return back to Kansas for the natural beauty, a boundless supply of landscapes and sunsets, to focus on his painting.
As an artist, he transports color, allowing the viewer to escape from the mundane, helping them look at the usual and see the unusual. Timothy is not just painting a place, he is painting “the” place by bringing the actual environment into the painting, and hopefully into a collectors’ home.
