“My work is created on impulse. Symbols and shapes take form without a clear path. Rhythm, repetition and design take shape as I fill my drawings and sculptures with my surroundings... trees, structures, bicycles. Life, eternity and death become my work. Why live, why die, why try? I'm 74 years old and don't have any good explanation for how I lived or why.”
-Tim West, speaking of his work before his death.
This exhibition is curated with the help of Diana Michelle Hausam, beneficiary to Tim’s art and director of Westland, a documentary about Tim West.
