First Friday Focus: September 2013 :: Arts :: Picks :: Philadelphia City Paper

Nice mention of my new solo exhibition in the Philadelphia City Paper...

First Friday Focus: September 2013 :: Arts :: Picks :: Philadelphia City Paper: Philadelphia-based artist Tim McFarlane is part of growing group of impressive abstract painters featured at Bridgette Mayer Gallery. His pieces are made up of chunky, complicated layers that highlight shape and color in equal parts. While McFarlane’s paintings are often curvy and fantastical, his exhibit “Presence” is colder and more geometrical, in a good way. The show also includes a site-specific painting, and McFarlane said his artwork is inspired by his environment. “The masses of forms overlapping, supporting, and negating each other in my work mirror observations of everyday life,” he said in a statement, “of how people interact with each other and their surroundings, as well as how the passage of time imposes itself on the memory of experience.” Through Oct. 5, opening Fri., Sept. 6 6 p.m., 215-413- 8893.
