The Ed Paschke Art Center Presents Tim Anderson

Chicago (April 21, 2018 to September 09, 2018) The Ed Paschke Art Center (EPAC)

“This is not a replica of my studio, it is a window into it. These are the pieces that fill the space and keep it in balance.”   -Tim Anderson

Tim Anderson lives and works in Chicago. Anderson has exhibited continuously since 1978 in Chicago and internationally. Anderson is one of the founders of “The Coldhouse Group”, that in 1987 initiated a new and successful exhibition concept by using abandoned cold storage warehouses and rail terminals slated for demolition as temporary exhibition halls. These shows led to an international exchange of art and artists.

 

In 1989, he started exhibiting his paintings in Europe and continues to do so today. From these travels, he has meticulously researched and referenced his subject matter. Anderson’s fascination with the portrait as subject matter elevates his themes to a direct confrontation with humanity. Tim Anderson is a portrait painter because faces move him. He captures the essence of his subject’s character and likeness in works that range from realistic to abstract.

 

“This unique reimagining of Anderson’s studio features original artwork, objects from his personal collection, and source material that inspires him”, said Vesna K. Stelcer, Director, Ed Paschke Art Center. In a 1998 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Ed Paschke described Anderson as an “observer, having a sharp eye for detail; everything is in depth with Tim, nothing is superficial.” A mentee and friend of Ed Paschke, it echoes that of Paschke’s Howard Street Studio, displayed within EPAC’s permanent collection galleries.

 

Anderson’s transformation of the gallery into an open studio gives viewers the chance to trace his creativity from headspace to workspace.
