Harding’s Art Systems
This week’s Art page features an interview with Fort Worth artist Timothy Harding, whose detailed, cerebral drawings and installations are concerned with the patterns that run underneath visual art, pop culture, city architecture, corporate systems, and political/economic realities. That sounds very high-falutin,’ but Harding tries to pare his work down to the essential lines, angles, colors, and shadows whenever examining a subject. He is fascinated and disturbed by the idea that our lives are controlled by anonymous, outside forces.
Harding’s new show, That Dog Won’t Hunt, will open Fri July 8 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center with a 6-9pm reception. It will run through August 27. Harding is keenly interested in engaging both knowledgeable contemporary art lovers and neophyte gallery goers, so stop by and find out what his work says to you.
