Timothy Mutzel

 

I moved to New York in 1996, enrolling in CUNY to attend the MFA program at Queens College. I play a lot with animal gestures, shapes and textures. There may be horns, veins, or the pelt of a bear, the majestic shape of a gorilla, a dead fawn or just the fur that remains. The rendering is always subordinate to the patterns, colors and lines of energy it’s made from. Like fractals, the patterns repeat themselves on different scales. Just as with looking at a bouquet of flowers or glancing up at the clouds, even an idle glance at old wallpaper, little expressions pop into being as you look at them, these may divert your attention for a moment and a story is told. My work is enriched by these fragments.
