Two Retrospectives of MFAST Faculty and Mentor Timothy App to Open at Katzen Art Center and Goya Contemporary

“Timothy App: The Aesthetics of Precision, Forty-Five Years of Painting”

A collection of paintings completed over a span of 45 years, this exhibition pays tribute to Timothy App’s complex exploration of abstract painting, as well as his contribution to the larger art historical narrative. App’s signature style of geometric abstraction, with its assertive visual tensions, reveals a concise and thoughtful understanding of the nature of painting. The exhibition brings together various aspects of the artist’s evolution and growth, demonstrating his status as one of the region’s most important living painters.

Catalogue available, published by Goya Contemporary on the occasion of the exhibition by the same title. With essays contributed by Richard Shiff and Lilly Wei, and an interview conducted by Julie Karabenick.

The American University Museum, Katzen Art Center. Open to the public: April 6th – May 26th, 2013. Reception: April 6th, 6 – 9pm. Gallery Talk: April 6th, 5pm.

“Timothy App: The Aesthetics of Precision, Forty-Five Years of Works on Paper”

A complex collection of works on paper completed over 45 years, this exhibition reveals Timothy App’s process of discovery through drawing, providing a unique glance at the artist’s technical and formal development. Mirroring the intricacy and virtuosity of his larger abstract paintings exhibited at the American University Museum, “Works on Paper” aims to expand the viewer’s awareness of the important role drawing plays in the advancement of his artistic practice. In many ways, App’s status as one of the region’s most important living abstract painters is made possible through the vehicle of drawing.

Goya Contemporary Gallery. Open to the public: April 12th – May 29th, 2013. Reception: April 12th, 6 – 8pm.
