Tim Maxwell Interview

“Bipartisan Alienation (or) Light Indifferent To The Blinding Shadows” by Tim Maxwell

Who are you?

That is hands down the most difficult philosophical question to answer. Luckily, this isn’t philosophy, so, I’m an artist with other attributes.

When did you start making art?

I started making art after I got my first tattoo when I was 18.

Why do you draw lines?

The lines are actually tiny circular motions of Ink that form lines. Lines most directly link my body and mind to construct logic and peace around me. It’s how I understand myself in relation to this world.

What inspires your aesthetic?

Anything that seems to possess ordered ambiguity. The poetry in Dante’s Inferno would be an example.

What emotion or feeling to you want your art to emit?

Contemplation with an uneasy peacefulness.

What is the process for creating a piece?

I imagine what I want to draw, sketch it on paper and fill it in with a cacophony of lines.

Why did you join Hic Et Nunc?

Nate Hill suggested I should try it.

What do you want the viewer to think or feel when they look at your art?

To embrace the bad as a requisite to experience any corresponding good. To never not acknowledge a bad day and listen.

Do you have any creations that are your favorite?

I don’t. I enjoy the process of everything I draw.

Anything else?

I hope anything I just wrote makes sense to you, the reader or myself later.
