Timothy Nolan: Drift

ShoeboxLA Presents
Timothy Nolan: Drift

Saturday, April 14, 2012 from 4-7pm

The Studio for Southern California History – Chinatown
818 N. Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

ShoeboxLA is pleased to present Timothy Nolan’s Drift. For nearly two decades Nolan has explored illusions of three-dimensional space through the use of pattern, line and shape in two dimensional wall work and floor installations. While Minimalism and Cubism have influenced Nolan’s work, he also draws inspiration from lesser-known movements such as Pattern and Decoration and Op Art, addressing shifting perception of two and three dimensions; plastic space vs. real dimensionality. For his ShoeboxLA project, he will further this investigation in a work that falls somewhere between object, installation and drawing.

Timothy Nolan received his M.F.A. from CUNY’s Queens College, Flushing, NY and has exhibited widely in Los Angeles and across the United States and Europe.  He was awarded CCI and Durfee Foundation ARC Grants in 2012 and 2010, the COLA Fellowship Grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs in 2008, and a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in 2001. A concurrent show entitled Restack, at CB1 Gallery in Los Angeles, will run from April 1- 29th. 

ShoeboxLA gives Los Angeles artists an opportunity to do one-day, site-specific exhibitions outside the traditional gallery setting. Founders Sophia Allison and Paul W. Evans provide an intimate space that challenges artists' and viewers' expectations of size and scale. Locations change for each show but the space remains the same.

(The Studio for Southern California History seeks to critically chronicle Southern California history from a social and cultural perspective. )
