Please join us for an informal open house to meet Tim Saternow, an artist from New York City who is in residence for two weeks at BoxoHOUSE.
Tim paints large figurative cityscape watercolors with a focus on the disappearing industrial face of New York. Trained as a theatre lighting and set designer, Tim is extremely sensitive to the emotive power of light and shadow. He creates a tension between the illusions of depth, carefully drawn linear perspective, and an obvious play on the surface of the paper through watermarks, paint runs and spatters. During his residency, Tim has been exploring the rich High Desert landscape, both natural and man-made, as well as interacting with the local community.
Tim’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the George Billis Gallery in New York. In addition, he has participated in group exhibitions in galleries and cultural centers, including The William Benton Museum of Art in Storrs, Connecticut; the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery, New York; Studio 587 Gallery, New York; the Center for Visual Art + Culture in Stamford, Connecticut; and the Prague Quadrennial in The Czech Republic.
Tim Saternow received a B.F.A. from the State University of New York at Purchase, and an M.F.A. from Yale University. He has also received an Emmy nomination for his art direction of The Piano Lesson on CBS, Hallmark Hall of Fame.
