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.
