Work by Daniel Featherstone:
Daniel Featherstone nominated the artist Tim Ward:
I met Tim a couple of years back when I happened upon an unassuming gallery in the sleepy town of Hasting-on-Hudson. His work stood out from the stifling clichéd environmental photography and watercolor landscapes and presented itself as fresh and challenging.
The intricacies of the pieces of wood hinged with aluminum and string drenched in a thought-out graphic color palette almost felt like a miniature theatrical performance. My background is in graphic design so I was immediately attracted to Tim's elegant use of symmetry, space and juxtaposing colour. I can feel his process is an organic one and has a sense of exploration in rhythmic movement and three dimensionality.
