Mixed Media Works by Tim McMichael

The Cincinnati Arts Association’s Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts launches its eleventh exhibition season with the premier of three dynamic exhibitions: Circumambulator: Site-Specific Installation by Nick De Pirro & Ian Williams; Scenarios, Situations and Circumstances: Paintings and Works on Paper by Paige Williams; and Linked: Mixed Media Works by Tim McMichael. 

Tim McMichael, a mixed media artist living in Cincinnati, works in diverse media that includes painting, drawing, sculpture and installation. Through a variety of mediums that includes shellac, acrylic sheet, liquid pigment, epoxy resin, graphite and found objects, he constructs dimensional drawings and assembled objects that grow outward in layers, both conceptually and aesthetically. Through this process of stratification, elegant forms emerge, revealing McMichael’s personal evolution of mark making and assemblage. In his most recent explorations, McMichael has been building dimensional drawings on wood panels through the intricate arrangements of cut-up maps layered within multiple applications of polymer resin. This process of stratification and mutation suggests a process of evolution and preservation through fossilization. Linked will feature a new series of works that includes: drawing studies, layered Plexiglas sculpture assemblages and works directly embedded in the gallery—reminiscent of portals or microscopic slides—as well as a series of intricately layered works that project away from the walls on delicate entrails of resin, appearing to hover above the surface.

Tim McMichael received a bachelor of fine arts from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 1994. Since completing his degree he has been an active participant in the alternative exhibition scene in Cincinnati, participating in solo and group exhibitions at The Mockbee, Semantics, Warsaw Project Space and The Artery. In 2000, he co-founded VOLK C.S.P.I., an alternative exhibition venue formed as a summer project featuring artists’ projects and live performances.
