Posted 04.01.13 by Drew Lundholm
WASHINGTON D.C.--"Timothy App: The Aesthetics of Precision, Forty-Five Years of Painting" is a collection of paintings by MFA in Studio Art (MFAST) faculty member Timothy App. Completed over a span of 45 years, this exhibition pays tribute to Timothy App's complex exploration of abstract painting, as well as his contribution to the larger art historical narrative. App's signature style of geometric abstraction, with its assertive visual tensions, reveals a concise and thoughtful understanding of the nature of painting. The exhibition brings together various aspects of the artist's evolution and growth, demonstrating his status as one of the region's most important living painters. The exhibition will be on display Saturday, April 6 through Sunday, May 26 in the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center (4400 Massachusetts Ave.). An opening reception will be held Saturday, April 6 from 6–9 p.m. with a gallery talk at 5p.m.
BALTIMORE--"Timothy App: The Aesthetics of Precision, Forty-Five Years of Works on Paper" is a complex collection of works on paper. It was completed over 45 years and reveals Timothy App's process of discovery through drawing, providing a unique glance at the artist's technical and formal development. Mirroring the intricacy and virtuosity of his larger abstract paintings exhibited at the American University Museum, "Works on Paper" aims to expand the viewer's awareness of the important role drawing plays in the advancement of his artistic practice. In many ways, App's status as one of the region's most important living abstract painters is made possible through the vehicle of drawing. The exhibition will be on display Friday, April 12 through Wednesday, May 29 at the Goya Contemporary Gallery (3000 Chestnut Ave.). An opening reception will be held on Friday, April 12 from 6–8 p.m.
