"I want to create objects that reflect small moments of raw beauty in the natural world."
After working in painting and photography, Tim Harding became intrigued with the intimacy of fiber and textiles - their textural, tactile richness, the inherent grid of the weave, the pliable plane. His pieces, comprised of cut, layered and stitched bits of silk, have a pixel-like quality reminiscent of pointillism. He uses "simultaneous contrast" - multiple solid colors in tight proximity to create the kind of vibrant richness associated with the Impressionists.
The layering process is a crucial aspect of Harding's work. He uses it to obscure and reveal images beneath the surface. Aiming to capture a visual feel of light, movement, depth distortions of light in the form of reflections and refractions that allude to space above and below the surface.
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
