"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
PREVIEW: Tim Hawkinson in Season 2 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" (2003)
Tim Hawkinson is known for creating complex sculptural systems through surprisingly simple means. Inspiration for many of Hawkinson's pieces has been the re-imagining of his own body and what it means to make a self-portrait of this new or fictionalized body. Sculptures are often re-purposed out of materials which then artist then mechanizes through hand-crafted electrical circuitry.
Tim Hawkinson is featured in the Season 2 episode "Time" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
