I saw something in the lenses accumulating in my peculiar collection. Assembled in a row they guard the entrance to an icy cavern. Sometimes things small and ordinary become huge and overwhelming. Walk among the distortions and see if you can find yourself.
Just completed another kinetic sculpture named Cosmic Clamshell Gimbal. This is number 6 in a series. Pictures show front and back view with almost innumerable options of faces and spacial orientation. The concept I am working with invites the viewer to move the various pieces of the art in an arrangement to their liking.
This is my fifth gimbal art inspired by the story of Plato's Cave. There are two realities depicted by two paintings. One painting is hidden on the backside of the visible painting and can only be seen in small segments when one is gazing into the spaces between the circular panels.
Tim Bachman Mandala Exhibit at the The Arts Castle
The show is on now through January 12, 2018. http://artscastle.org/exhibits/
The Arts Castle is exhibiting over 35 of my mandala art and nine kinetic sculptures.
This year's photographic theme is focusing on unfocused atmospheres. Following our journey through New Mexico last month and a surreal drive through pogonip (a form of freezing fog). This ancient train caboose is moving into a distant past.
