Tim Brawner

Tim Brawner’s paintings mine a space between the uncanny and the grotesque. Seeking to produce unease in the viewer, Brawner utilizes the idiom of illustration to render images of alienation via disparate representational elements. In each work, the artist uses a monochromatic style to achieve what he calls a pathos of ‘weirdness.’ As such, Brawner’s seductive surfaces coalesce his multiple references into a singular representational image that evokes both trepidation and dread. As the artist intones, this ‘weirding’ is part of the drama of his work, forming an alternative world beyond our given dichotomies.
