TIMOTHY DUFFIELD RETROSPECTIVE
SCULPTURE, DRAWINGS, PRINTS, & COMMISSIONS
My work does not exist in a vacuum. I see it as part of a continuum, that I am a small part of a cultural parade through time, and you will find references to the past and to our historic surroundings throughout the show.
This exhibition features works by artist Timothy Duffield completed in England and America from 1960 until 2017. It includes several new pieces completed this year that reflect the power of art to reawaken the creative spirit after a lengthy illness. Duffield’s work falls into a number of themes that embody and inform the subject and form of his oeuvre: the figure, landscape and sculpture, gardens, and historic and architectural references.
The earliest work in the exhibition is a sculpture Duffield created during his beaux arts sculpture studies in 1960 when he was 19 years old. Over the next 62 years, he has branched out into many other activities including studying printmaking, and in recent years experimenting anew with the use of the computer as his printmaking tool. Duffield’s large public commissions were a natural extension of his sculptural work, and he has continued to pursue drawing in its own right throughout his career, and not just as studies for sculpture. The artist invites you to come share his journey and celebrate the triumph of art over illness.
